TRENCH ART

WWI Trench Art with etchings of a rose branch on a 75 mm shell casing. This would make a great vase or mantel piece.

Trench art is any decorative item made by soldiers, prisoners of war or civilians where the manufacture is directly linked to armed conflict or its consequences. It offers an insight not only to their feelings and emotions about the war, but also their surroundings and the materials they had available to them.

This fine piece of Trench art can be found on the first floor of the People’s Store in Delyn’s showroom.
