    coffee cans

    I have some coffee cans that have донг асс written on them. Does anyone know what this means? The cans have the mark of a lighthouse on them I wonder which factory they come from. Can anyone help?

    Can you make a picture of it?
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Maybe it means "Донбасс"?
    Donbass is a big industrial region in Ukraine.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donbass

    I can not identify a factory though.

    Edit: Perhaps it is not a lighthouse but something from the areas of coal mining, steelmaking or heavy engineering industry. Like blast furnace, for example.

    NO this is not a joke. The industrial area sounds right as the design is industrial. I cannot add pictures as I dont know how!

    I have had another look at the mark on the bottom and it is a miners lamp also the design on the cups relate to mining. These cups are of high quality they are bone china and have gold guilding.

    Hi, ajoblanca!

    Finally I found the producing enterprize of your cups. It's Druzhkovka Porcelain Plant.
    Address:
    Pedagogicheskaya street 1
    Druzhkovka
    Donetsk region
    Ukraine 84205

    Also it has an internet site http://www.farfor.si.net.ua/, which is very poor because, as I know, DPP has been bankrupted several times for the last several years. You can see there it's logo: miners lamp.

    BTW Donbass is from "DONetsk coal BASin."

    Druzhkovka is a town of 64000 population http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Druzhkivka.
