Original British WWII RAF Button Trench Art Brass Cigarette Lighter

Item Description

Original Item: One-of-a-kind. During the trench warfare of World War One, 1914 to 1918 when there was not an active Campaign being waged all participants had a lot of time on their hands. The result was Trench Art useful or decorative items made from whatever the war effort had supplied with easy access.

The term trench art was also carried on to items made by soldiers in WW2. Here is a charming little all brass cigarette lighter made from two WWII Royal Air Force brass tunic buttons. In the shape of a hexagonal nut this measures only 1" x .25! It even has a wick with screw on cover, one just needs lighter fluid and you are all set. Very decorative and still useful!
