DESCRIPTION

This is a well-preserved example of an SS Zeltbahn, or shelter quarter, which when combined with 3 other quarters, could be used as a protective tent by SS members in the field.  Alone, it would be used as a poncho.  Colors are bright on both sides.  This design was produced from approximately 1940 to 1944 and takes its name from the obvious similarity with plane tree bark. There are six basic variants of this pattern numbered 1 to 6. They were printed in pairs on the same screen.  This is the "6" version of this pattern, as indicated by the number "6" that appears in the printing.  Buttons show wear, the cloth itself is in great condition.  These are disappearing from the market, as enterprising crooks use the material to construct more "desireable" uniform items like hats, panzer wraps, etc.  This would make an excellent addition to a Waffen SS Uniform mannequin display.

Bidding is closed for this item.
