Authentic and VERY Rare Pre-WWII Marynarka Wojenna or Polish Navy Aluminum Soup Bowl Used in the Officers or Enlisted Mess


Call The Pirate's Lair @ 540-659-6209

polish navy aluminum bowl 1937 officer's wardroom china polish navy mar woj anchor topmark

Left Photo Illustrates the large Pre-WWII Aluminum Bowl used by the Polish Navy or Marynarka Wojenna, 11" across and stands 1.75" high. This bowl is available for sale, $195. and is a very unique and rare part of Polish history in that it was used prior to WWII and survived both the German occupation as well as the takeover from Russia post-WWII and incorporated into the Soviet Empire.

Photo to the Right Shows the Polish Navy Topmark Stamped Onto the Edge of the Bowl Which Consists of the Initials "Mar. Woj" on either side of a Fouled Anchor. The initials stand for Marynarka Wojenna, or Polish Navy.

Left Photo is taken in 1939 on the enlisted mess deck of a Polish Destroyer. Note that soup is being served and the large tin soup bowls! Exactly like the ones offered here on The Pirates Lair and dated 1937.

Photo to the Right is a closeup of the the two bowls.

Photo to the Left Shows the Bottom of the Bowl stamped with the manufactuer's name "PELIKAN" and a date of manufacture, "1937". Available and For Sale at $295.

Photo to the Right appears to be front and back stamped post-production with a "101" which could be an inventory number, and what appears to be a double stamped initials "WW" or "MM".

The above photographs illustrate a very rare Marynarka Wojenna or Polish Navy large bowl used by crewmen in the Polish Navy. This is the only dinnerware or tableware piece we have been able to obtain from the Marynarka Wojenna or Polish Navy and we would certainly like to add to our collection.

Note the initials Mar. Woj. on either side of the fouled anchor which stands for Marynarka Wojenna. This bowl certainly has seen some use, but we think it is absolutely beautiful and priceless!

The above photos represent only the second Polish Navy aluminum bowl found in over 8 years which we discovered in Germany, and is identical to the first one found in 2005. This second bowl proves that this was a standard piece of mess gear used by Polish sailors.

Above is an aluminium drinking cup of the Polish Navy, dated on the bottom 1935, and clearly shows the Polish Naval insignia stamped on the front along with 0,5L whatever that means (perhaps 1/2 Litre?). The insignia on both the cup and bowls are essentially the same which establishes both provenance and consistent standardization.

Above is what we believe to be a 9" Porcelain Dinner or Lunch Plate from the Polish Navy. Date of production and use is uncertain. The underglaze blue striping and anchor appear to be faded from alot of use and wear. If someone can verify or dispute this and better identify the provenance of this plate it would be much appreciated!

ANY TEXT BELOW THIS LINE IS SOLEY FOR THE BENEFIT OF SEARCH BOTS, SPYDERS AND OTHER DENIZENS OF THE DEEP DARK SEA INTERNET The Polish Navy is called the Mar Woj navy of Poland. The Polish Navy apparently had fine china tableware made for it.
Which included a serving bowl or tureen. This would be a perfect gift for Dutch or Poland's Naval attache, a Polish diplomat or even as a formal presentation gift for a Dutch Ambassador

A Marynarka Wojenna military attache would also love to have this official Polish tableware and perhaps even Poland's Navy dinnerware as it includes the soup bowls, fish servers, various sugar bowls and dinner plates and cups.
