    Default RKKA bakelite - soap,toothbrush containers

    I thought to show my collection of pre war Red Army bakelite containers , they are found in various shades , ( nice marble effect ). The red star emblem shows its military issue. The green and violet ones contained soap. the square shaped one was for tooth paste and the long narrow box carried a toothbrush .
    Below i show a civilian soap dish (also battlefield recovered) which is very flimsy compared to the Army ones . They are hard to find today, and were probably discontinued after 1941 .

    They are all bakelite . The one without star is a thin civilian made container , dug up on the battlefield.
    Robin ; the brown one for toothpaste came out of that flat.
