This is a stunning solid brass German trench art piece made into a plant stand or pan trivet. This is a deformed shell known as trench art, bought at a French militaria market in the Somme region of France. 'Trench art' is a term used to describe objects made from the debris and by-products of modern warfare. Trench Art is usually associated with the First World War, although similar items have been produced in other conflicts too. Most trench art was made by servicemen to pass the time when not in the front line. This is dated 1917, weighs a staggering 4kg and started life as a German shell. It is in a good used condition and is an unusual example of trench art which would add to any collection or simply as a gift for a veteran. All the items we sell are used or vintage and will show signs of a previous life. This is all part of their unique shabby chic appeal. Please see pictures which form part of the description. See our website vintage shop selling over 300 unique, vintage and up cycled French brocante finds for your home and garden including more WW1 militaria.
