Shaker in silvered metal, by Christofle, with the following inscription in Swedish: "16. XI. 1944, FRA VENNERI, NORDISKA (November 16th, 1944 "To my friends from the North")
Presumably to commemorate an event in World War II, perhaps the launch of Operation Queen.
On the Western Front on November 16th, 1944, the 9th and 1st American armies simultaneously launched an offensive to take over the plain to the north of Aachen, bordered by the Wurm and the Ruhr. This was "Operation Queen".
The Christofle hallmarks are visible under the shaker's base.
In excellent second-hand condition. Most likely very rarely used and kept safe from humidity. There are some light scratches. See the pictures for details.
Dimensions: 21 cm high (approximately)
