TEAPOT USED BY EMPLOYEES AT FRIEDRICHSHAFEN AND FRANKFURTZEPPELIN PLANTS

SKU: 21-321

$475.00

Here is a very different example of zeppelin-affiliated tableware. This simple teapot was NOT intended for passenger use onboard zeppelins. It IS possible that some were used by LZ-127 Graf Zeppelin and the LZ-129 Hindenburg crew members. It primarily was used in the employee dining rooms at the Zeppelin Company’sFriedrichshafen and Frankfurt workshops and plants. Both cities’ locations maintained hanger and construction/repair space.
The teapot (teekanne) is made of a base metal and measures
2 ⅛” x 4 ¼” x 5.” It has a stout handle and a simple button on the lid for opening to add hot water and tea. It has the legend below stamped on its side.

                                                                Flug u. Zeppelinhafen
Gaststätten (Restaurants)

The teekanne’s bottom displays a manufacturer’s hallmark for Krupp Berndorf. Its size, 30cl., is also listed. It represents three-tenths of a liter (10.14 ounces), which would fill two small teacups. The pot sports a wonderful patina. A lot of Zeppelin Company shoptalk was shared over this pot. You can create some fine memories of your own by using it to brew your tea. From personal experience, I can vouch that it works just as well as it did some ninety years ago!
