    Interesting object. This "fire bomb" is well known as the Molotov cocktail, named after the Soviet foreign minister Vjatsjeslav Michajlovitsj Molotov. See; Molotov cocktail - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia .
    The Soviets and also Molotov himself highly disliked the name for this fire bomb. Although this fire bomb also was used by the Red army and the Soviet partisans, the Soviets gave it another name. For them it was formally well known as "Butyikas goryuchej smes'yu - Bottle with flammable mixture".

    Jason,

    Can you discern exactly what the purplish-blue ink stamp says that is at the bottom of the label?
    It looks like some numbers and letters and possible smudges, but I cannot quite tell from your close-up photo.
    And are there any other inkstamps on the instruction label anywhere else?
    Thank you very much! Very nice item for your collection.

    Here is an example of a mass-produced "Molotov Cocktail" that I recently added to my collection. This was found in Kursk. It might be one that was made by the Finnish company Alko, but I am not sure.
