    Painted steel? Any marks? May be by Goberg. If so, likely pre WWII. Otherwise, could be as late as the 50s when there was a bit of a resurgence.

    No paint, it's just dirty. And no marks. It looks pretty diy, but certainly not new

    Just googled Goberg and found something pretty similar
    Thank you @verybrad !

    Most Goberg was marked somehow, even if with just GERMANY stamped somewhere. If this is unmarked and tinned vs. painted, I doubt this is Goberg.

    Perhaps I'll find a mark once I clean it. Thank you anyways!

    I'm sure I'm wrong, but the dirty one looks like rust to me, so it shouldn't be steel, but chromed iron or something like that. I don't know, maybe I'm wrong, the photos are not exhaustive to understand.
