    SS Barrack Room Lamp Shade

    Here is a Lamp shade for a SS Barracks room.

    It doesn't have any markings or stamps that I can see, but it does need a good clean

    It is from Germany and I think it's great....

    For many of us that have a passion for explosive ordnance, when displaying our collections or discussing with outsiders there is often a continuous struggle to explain our passion without having it mistaken for something it is not. It is a short step for many (especially outsiders) to see our interest in historic and technical ordnance artifacts and suspect related interest in subjects less savory, be they historical, political, ideological or otherwise. This forum has always maintained a strong separation here, normally without need for discussion or explanation. You will find that the vast majority of members here are here for their enjoyment of the technical and historical aspects of world munitions and related delivery systems. Other materials should be taken to other forums with groups of like minded individuals, they are not needed or appreciated here.
    All dug or live ordnance shown in my posts is under EOD control and has been or will be dealt with accordingly by EOD personnel

    Hey Skull

    Cool lampshade.

    Not sure why it's generated such a kerfuffle. Don't see how anything about it as offensive. A very unique piece of history and interesting in its own right.

    Thanks for posting the pics.

    You don't find the SS offensive?

    From historical point - I personally don't.

    Not at all. It's history.

    Not personally my sort of thing, though I know others have strong interest in this area.

    I do have one question though, what makes you so sure it is an original SS item?
    I would have thought that the design would be more 'accurate' and less of a tilt, if you know what I mean?
    Are there any period photos of these?
