Pair of TRENCH ART VASE Made from 75 mm WWI artillery brass shells made into vases. Unusual style of engraving decoration on side says "ARGONNE 1914-1915-1916", in very large script letters. Also has butterfly, flowers, and leaves worked into the stippled background as shown. These ones have lots of eye appeal!!!
Each one is a VERY UNUSUAL one, as (unlike Verdun, etc., which are relatively common) ARGONNE decorated shells are not plentiful. It has not been cut off. Extremely well done.
Condition is excellent and it has a nice even aged brass patina.
Photos tell all. 3" diameter, 13.75" tall.
Something unusual and different for your Trench Art collection !!!
Reasonable prices for these authentic & unique pieces of French antiques!
