Original U.S. WWI Inert 37mm Trench Art Shell Casings and Round For The 37mm Infantry Gun Model 1917 - 3 Items
Original Items: Only One Lot of 3 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.
Due to the “complete” round, this lot is not available for export. The 37mm round is totally inert and in compliance per the current BATF standards governing ordnance.
Two of the shell casings feature very beautiful and intricate floral designs, while the third one features the roundel removed from a Prussian brass belt buckle.
Offered in wonderful condition and comes more than ready for display.
