This is a pair of WW1 French brass vases decorated and formed by hand. These historical pieces of WW1 militaria would make a great gift for a militaria collector. These relics were bought at a traditional French market in the Somme region of France, are original WW1 pieces which are sold in the ORIGINAL CONDITION they were bought in; they look like they may have some lacquer coating which can be easily removed for polishing if desired. These could be polished a little more to a shiny brass finish or can be left to age and tarnish even more over time. These are in a solid condition with SOME DISTORTION to the tops as shown in the pictures and video and reflected in the lower than usual price. We buy all my stock in France from local markets and as such all the items we sell are used or vintage and will show signs of a previous life, in this case it is over 100 years old  so will have small dents and marks. This is all part of their unique vintage/antique appeal. It is not always possible to show every minor scratch on a photo so if you are looking for new then these may not be for you. Any significant flaws are always highlighted in both photos and descriptions. See our vintage brocante shop selling over 300 unique, vintage and up cycled French finds for your home and garden including more militaria, all sourced from markets across France. In the case of militaria, this is bought from markets and militaria dealers in the area around the Battlefields of the Somme.
