This is a Wehrmacht (Heer) Vehicle Battery Heater. It is dated 1942.
It is in excellent condition! Most of the white paint on the side is still present. The burning wick is unused and full lenght, the porcelain flameholder is undamaged, the whole surrounding shell is in very good conditon as well.
These heaters were used during cold winters (eg. on the eastfront) to keep the battery warm, of German wartime vehices.
The total height is approximately 19 centimeters, so also ideal for displaypurposes.
This would make a great dipplaypiece in a collection! It is literally the best one we’ve ever had.
