Original French WWI 75mm Artillery Shell Casing Trench Art Vase Lot - 3 Items
Original Items: Only One Lot Available. Trench art is any decorative item made by soldiers, prisoners of war, or civilians where the manufacture is directly linked to armed conflict or its consequences. It offers an insight not only to their feelings and emotions about the war, but also their surroundings and the materials they had available to them.
Not limited to the World Wars, the history of trench art spans conflicts from the Napoleonic Wars to the present day. Although the practice flourished during World War I, the term 'trench art' is also used to describe souvenirs manufactured by service personnel during World War II. Some items manufactured by soldiers, prisoners of war or civilians during earlier conflicts have been retrospectively described as trench art.
All 3 items are in wonderful condition and appear to be vases or the likes. They all stand at approximately 9 inches tall. The details are still visible and are actually quite appealing. There is no extensive damage present other than the usual scratches and tarnishing.
A lovely lot ready for further research and display.
All items are completely inert and are in compliance with the current BATF standards on inert ordnance. Not available for export.
