German term or phrase: Drehköcher
Does anybody know what this is? I think in my case it's a pen or paintbrush holder, but I have very little to go on. It's part of a series of products for kids. The only other text I have is: Runder Korpus, Format: 11cm in der Höhe und 8cm im Durchmesser
Material: stabile Kartonqualität
Steht auf einem stabilen Fuß, dessen weiche Unterseite keine Kratzer macht
Die vielen Motive auf dem glitzerreichen Fond erzählen eine kleine Geschichte…

Whereby I would also love to know what "Fond" is in this connection. Help!
