I found this really neat bullet shaped sewing kit.
It looks to be blue enamel on the outside. When you take the top off there you find thread and a thimble. The rim says Made in Germany US Zone Art Gift.
The US Zone Germany>>> was one of the four zones Germany was divided into after World War II when it was occupied by the United States.
I have seen the Clavert kits,they were advertising whiskey I think.. I was wondering if this one would have been any different as there is no company name on it. Was it just something you could purchase and not spend alot of money on? Thanks for taking the time to look and any additional information you might have!<<a href="http://tinypic.com" target="_blank">
I've had several "US Zone" items from time time. They're like "Made in Occupied Japan" items, only made in Germany. The Germans were trying to get their economy going again after hitler trashed their country, and they made lots of stuff. I've even seen one item marked, "Made in Occupied Austria."
