Antique 1917 WW I Folk Art Primitive Trench Art~50 Cal Shell Vase~Lilly Flowers


Antique 1917 WW I Folk Art Primitive Trench Art~50 Cal Shell Vase~Lilly Flowers


Description:  Up for sale is this great example of World War I trench art.  The shell casing is a 3 inch 50 caliber Naval shell.  It is dated 07-17.  There are other markings to the bottom that might be of importance to a collector, this is clearly a naval shell.  The shell has a great carving of Lilly flowers extending up the shell.  Very accurate and well done sculpture.  The background is textured all around the shell.  Time has given the piece a great dark patina.  No signature of the artist.  Really a great piece of WW I trench art that might be of interest.

Dimensions:  Large shell measuring 23.5" tall with the bottom diameter at 4.25" and top diameter at 3".

Condition:  Very good condition with no chips, cracks or metal loss.  Some minor wear to the finish near the bottom.  Please examine all the pictures for more detail and if you have any questions please email or give us a call.  Thanks for looking and have a blessed day.
