Authentic Royal Netherlands Koninklijke Marine (Royal Netherlands Navy or Royal Dutch Navy) Dinnerware and Tableware Illustrating the Royal Navy Insignia of the King's Crown above a Beautifully Detailed Fouled Anchor and Chain with the initials KM below representing Koninklijke Marine or Royal Navy. Call The Pirate's Lair @ 540-659-6209



royal netherlands royal dutch navy Koninklijke Marine navy officer's wardroom china royal dutch navy netherlands Koninklijke Marine topmark
Above is a large beautiful tureen, deep platter or bowl clearly showing the Netherlands Navy KM topmark which is an abbreviation for Koninklijke Marine or Royal Navy. It measures approximately 18" long x 10" wide and sits 4" high.

The above photographs illustrate a very rare Royal Dutch Navy (Netherlands) Koninklijke Marine or Royal Navy large tureen or serving bowl. This is the only dinnerware or tableware piece we have been able to obtain from the Dutch Navy with the KM initials, and we would certainly like to add to our collection.

Note that this is not your typical restaurantware, but is made of fine bone and is absolutely beautiful and detailed with the Royal King's Crown of the Netherlands situated above the fouled anchor and chain with the initials KM below that which stands for Koninklijke Marine. It is a beautiful piece of fine, delicate white china with just a hint of blue in it and produced by George Jones and Sons (Crescent logo) of England.

Above is a photograph of a Netherlands Royal Navy soup bowl along with a British Royal Navy demitasse coffee set.

It appears from the color of the soup bowl, a matching dinner plate which we have, and the gravy boat that they are part of a matching set of dinnerware. We found the gravy boat in the Netherlands and the soup bowl in the U.K.

Above is a photograph of a Netherlands Royal Navy Compartmented Metal Mess Tray most likely used in the Enlisted Mess. Note the KM insignia.

These compartmented metal mess trays have been used by various navies over the past 60 years as an economical means to feed its enlisted crew; including the US Navy, Chinese Navy, and the Dutch Navy.



At this time we would like to take this time and space to thank Mr. Erwin Broekhuis (one of our many visitors), who correctly identified for us the initials KM as seen on the tureen. We initially were told that these initials stood for Kriegs Marine (which in German means "war navy"). We want to thank Mr. Broekhuis for his contribution in making our web site as historically and technically accurate as possible, and towards that end we welcome any and all suggestions and input.

The Dutch not only produced fantastic naval china, but also the famous Klewang Naval Cutlass used in the Dutch East Indies in Army, Police and Naval services during the 19th and 20th centuries. In fact this Dutch Klewang was thought highly enough by the United States Navy that they modeled the last official US Navy cutlass identified as the Model M1917 after the Dutch Model 1898 Klewang!!



Below you will find Price and Availability of the famous Dutch Klewang Naval Cutlass used by the Netherlands Army, Police and Navy from the late 1890's up until today as ceremonial items. The Dutch Klewang was initially made for use in the Netherlands East Indies in the South Pacific for their colonial forces. This style of cutlass was so popular that the U.S. Navy patterned the model M1917 naval cutlass after the Dutch Klewang.

ANY TEXT BELOW THIS LINE IS SOLEY FOR THE BENEFIT OF SEARCH BOTS, SPYDERS AND OTHER DENIZENS OF THE DEEP DARK SEA INTERNET The Royal Netherlands Kriegsmarine is lamely called the Royal Dutch navy of the Netherlands navy. The Royal Netherlands 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 Netherlands Naval attache, a Dutch diplomat or even as a formal presentation gift for a Dutch Ambassador

A Dutch or Netherlands Naval military attache would also love to have this official Netherlands tableware and perhaps even Dutch Navy dinnerware as it includes the soup bowls, fish servers, various sugar bowls and dinner plates and cups.
