Original U.S. WWI and WWII Shell Casing Trench Art Lot - 4 Items

Item Description

Original Items: Only One Lot of 4 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 items are completely inert and are in compliance with the current BATF standards on inert ordnance.

All items appear to be made from 75mm shell casings, which was the “go to” for trench art as these shell casings were literally everywhere. They are in wonderful condition and feature incredible artwork!

A lovely collection of trench art that comes more than ready for further research and display!
