Default 30,5 Skoda Morter Model

Hello,

Here's something I picked up recently from a family who was stationed in Germany right after WW2 ended. The father was involved with getting the government set up again in Germany after hostilities ended.

This is a scale model of the Austro-Hungarian 30.5 Morser/Morter, made by the Skoda Works Factory. Apparently the German's also used this type of mortar as well.

I placed a quarter in some of the photos to give an idea of the size. The marble base and mortar are heavy. The mortar & marble base weighs in at about 17 pounds. I cleaned some of the dust off it, and see it is still very dusty.

When I lived in Prague for about a year, I saw one of these mounted on a granite "mountain" for sale early one Friday morning at the famous Buštěhrad Collector Market. Now I finally have one!

Best Regards,

Alan
