Here we have, a very nice trench art vase. It is made from a 75MM M26 artillery shell casing, and is marked on the bottom 1944, 75mm, C.B.&C. Co. 39. It has a rose pattern on one side, and a tulip pattern on the other, with the hammered dimples all over the piece, and the bottom portion of the vase is ribbed as you can see in the photos. It measures 10 5/8" high, 3 3/4" wide at the top, and is 3 1/2" wide at the base. Heavy brass casing, weighing almost 4# as it sets. If you collect WWII or WWI items, here is a great piece of trench art. Came from a very large local collection here is the western part of N.C.
