Post WWII Germany - East and West
USSR (1980's)
Greece, Cyprus

Those are the ones I know about so far. From other artifacts I am finding, I suspect there are others...

Item #9
An opium-based (?) liquor called 'Un-ga-pai' or pay (lable read while under the influence) is still sold in these shapely earthenware jugs. Even the the stickers and lables haven't changed or been updated from the time of your ancient/original versions. Most recently seen at Liquor Barn and Beverages and More...

I have something very similar to #10. Mine has a blue glass ring, two strings of glass beads and very fragile tassles attached. The diameter (guessing) is no more than 8 inches. I got it from my grandmother and she got it from her mother. It is possible she got it on a trip she took in the late 40's to several continents (Holland, Sweden, Germany, ?,?,?)
