It looks to me to be some type of Food Grater. Is the Outside Texture of the Tube suitable for Grating?
Definitely a container, Peter, but thanks :)
You have the answer in your hand. A check of German patents on line show the following:
Pat # 63,356 dtd June 18, 1907 by Bailly & Co.,P, Paris, FR "shoulder braces and suspenders". No pic or illustration is available on line but you can purchase the "book" if you want. My guess is that it rotates and puts a pattern on the fabric which strengthens it, but that is just a guess.
A lot of the DGRM sites show this # "missing"...it's down a ways.
For some reason my link didn't attach.
Note: Link says US Patent Office, but it is a list of German patents from 1907. Because of Germany's history and gaps for WW I and WW II and East/West Germany and Repatriation their patents are covered in multiple locations.
This is a US site - no mention of Germany, but thanks :)
DGRM= Deutsche which is German for Germany! If it's definitely a container as you say why didn't you say so in your original post? You called it a "tube".
Also you contradict yourself in your original post. You said "..cap stamped DGRM, No. 63356. D.R.G.M. sta..."
For reasons unknown you changed the initials from DG- - to DR- - If the cap is stamped DGRM you probably acquired the wrong definition.
Or it could be a typo.
My link given shows "German" in the upper left side. Scroll up.
Didn't you have a pic of the stamp? It's gone now.
If a container, it probably held suspenders or shoulder braces... If they were cloth then the patent info could be on the container. Just speculating.
Obviously a typo - sorry. I said tube but I thought it would be obviously a container as it is hollow and has a cap. It's only 14cm high so wouldn't hold anything too big!
So which is it, "stamped on lid" DGRM or DRGM?
And, what happened to the picture that showed the close-up of the writing?
I admitted it was a typo and apologised, Tom - it's "Deutsches Reiches Gebrauchs Musterschutz".
Thanks Tom but this is definitely a container. It's 14cm tall and 1.8cm wide at base :)
I think the Cigar Tube is an excellent guess.
