    Default Luftwaffe Mess Hall cup?

    I collect some of the Third Reich porcelain, although I've never seen a cup like this. Most of the cups that I do have, have the makers mark and Luftwaffe/Heer eagle on the bottom. This one has the Eagle on the side. Is this just a normal Luftwaffe mess hall cup? Or something different like on officers mess hall cup?Click image for larger version.

    To me the eagle, especially its head, doesnt look very Luftwaffery

    The CT stamp looks good. A very famous porcelain manufacturer.
    CT Germany was first part of a mark used by a company in Altwasser, Germany (now part of Walbrzych, Poland), in 1845. The mark was used by Carl Tielsch. The Hutschenreuther firm took over the company in 1918 and continued to use the CT. CT Germany was used by the Hutschenreuther firm even after the Altwasser factory, now part of Walbrzych, Poland, was nationalized by the Polish government

    So this could be a post war fake or reproduction?

    I know I wasn't sure about the eagle either. But compared to other Luftwaffe eagles, it's not that bad....is it? I also like the Luftwaffe candle lanterns, but I'll pass on most of them because of the ugly eagles on the bottoms such as these.....

    Some look like pigeons, or stick chickens.....just plain uglyClick image for larger version.
