This is my new hod. I scored this at the yearly tractor show flea market.

Suet624 Can you explain what this is? 10mo
quirkyreader @Suet624 This is a hod. It‘s used to transport vegetables after they are picked. The veggies can also be washed in the hod before being taken inside. Since this is a vintage piece I won‘t be washing things in it. And it does have some heft to it. 10mo

I‘m still working on the translation of this. Does anyone have any clue. I think part of it says good luck.

Purpleness My German is super rusty, and I always have trouble with the old fashioned print, but what I can get is “…I have forgotten/…/but I wish from my heart/ truly, truly lots of luck!” Sorry, I really can‘t get the second line at all. If someone else gives you a different translation, go with theirs; it‘s been years since I took German. 10mo
