GERMAN WWI STUNNING WATER BOTTLE SET.
One of the finest sets we have ever encountered of a standard item of German issued field equipment. This example having an outer cover of a rough cotton mixed ersatz type material, profusely stamped to the rear of the cover '1916' with the maker's markings for Berlin. All press studs are present and have all their black japanning. The heavy leather harness is in excellent unstained condition with a wonderful light brown colour to the leather, which is all supple and perfectly stable. The carbine hook is complete and functions well. The original cork plug is also in place. The set has seen limited field service with one very small break to the cloth at the base, which does not affect the overall display-ability whatsoever and clearly shows where the bottle has been very lightly used.
