Can only confirm surely with all dimensions and weight... but I am almost certain its AK47 post war... US/German/Japanese/Soviet WW2 were different...all tapered and not 7,62 in diam.
You know you’re most likely right… Not that I would doubt you anyway! LOL! But I do recall looking at another comparison and it mentioned it being aK 47.Can only confirm surely with all dimensions and weight... but I am almost certain its AK47 post war...

great info thanks! I thought it odd how much smaller this one was compared to the ones I've seen used in the ETO such as the pic posted above. a few months ago an RAF marked teapot exactly like the one in the pic above was offered on eBay out of the UK but I lost the bid pretty happy with this one though. these wartime era teapots seem to rarely ever come available.Edward, you have to remember that this was before teabags so these smaller pots were used when brewing tea for one or two people. You only brought out the big pot when there was a crowd round for a cuppa. My granny (very old school English) who would never allow teabags in her house even up until she fell off her perch in 2001, used to have several sizes and in varying degrees of poshness depending on how many and who the tea was for.
Fantastic photos! I didn't have these... thanks! yes, I came across many American era phones with no dials as well, like you said, internal phone connections. I thought of getting one of those until this civi version came up for such a nice price.
