Any Deutschlander here, need a translation
This is a old Red plate that seems as if it was made for a special purpose, got it from my long gone grandparents. Probably from the 1920's or earlier, I'm about to use it for fire wood , any idea what it is or what's left of the label on back is about.? yes the pic was taken on a toilet cover!


There is a a much higher resolution image ( 1 meg ) of the label at
http://s93582230.onlinehome.us/free/redplate.htm

I have too much stuff in the house and many things from the grandparents including a pre-Nazi era bracelet with a swastika design, hey it was a common symbol of luck in many areas back then








Thanks for any help

5. Thanks VERY much Squatch
It has a slight bowl shape to it , so I'm guessing a ball could be rolled into one of the depressions around the edge , and if "the ball falls" or gets knocked out, scores some how???

since it was a image it was hard/ impossible to copy correctly into a web translator

still looking for hints on what the game might be

Thanks so much Squatch

2. Try using this site to get a basic translation
Won't get a true translation, but you should bea able to gather a bit more insight into what is written.

6. I know they did travel in the 20's , not in the 30's as far as I know, also..
As a tool collector I have a tool with the word "swastika" on it, They were made by a company in the USA in the 20's that went out of business due to their lack of fore sight of their logo
