This WW1 militaria is  a complete used inert WW1 British 18 pounder shrapnel shell, brass case and fuse. This would make a great present for a militaria collector or for use as an unusual doorstop or fireside decoration. This has been painted and polished whilst still retaining its authenticity with the expected impact damage to the fuse and some small dents to the brass case. This comes apart into 2 pieces for ease of postage. (brass shell case, fuse is secured to the shrapnel shell and does not separate) This also means that you could add sand to the brass case to make for a heavier doorstop. This was bought at a French market in the Somme and has been painted and polished in the UK. See my shop for more  WW1 militaria.

I buy all my stock in France from local markets and as such all the items I sell are used or vintage and will show signs of a previous life, in this case it is over 100 years old and has been fired. 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.
