Here we have an authentic German Army surplus butter dish. A soldier carries many things into the field with him, and among all the items to help him win a fight is a robust aluminium tin can containing his butter!

Made of Aluminium these are robust and hard to dent. The lid twists on tightly and has a rubber seal to keep it air tight and the contents fresh. The bottom half of the tin has a plastic bowl you can remove if you wished to store something else such as tobacco. The dish lid has a Bundesadler eagle imprint and on the bottom on the tin it has the NSN number.

Just as they have served the German soldier, they can serve you when camping out in the bush or even at home!

Perfect size to keep tea bags in on the trail. Love it !

Does what it says on the tin

Great size (fits in my jacket pocket) and quite durable. After giving mine a wash it was as good as new, and I now use it to store butter in the fridge or as a snack box. I think I'll also buy a few more in the future because they're so handy.

Very handy

Good condition, seal works well, practical little container.

Cute and handy portable snack box!

This little metal box is in very good condition. Even after decades, rubber seal still works! It's very comfortable to hold and the classic design looks great. I plan to use it to pack some cashews to take to work. Really love the little box, I might buy a few more later.
