Trench Art Shellcases


World War I (1914-1918)




WW1 Trench Art  - a corsetted "Canon de 65 (montagne)" casing,

engraved "FRANCE" with flowers


Opportunity for this WW1 Centenary, to own an engraved 65 mm brass shellcase, which has been cleverly "corsetted" all around. Below the corsetting is the engraved legend: "FRANCE" set between two flowers. 

This type of shellcasing was used with the Canon de 65 M (montagne) modele 1906 (or 65 mm mle. 1906) which was a French mountain gun, used by the French Armee d'Orient against the forces of the Central Powers in the mountains of Macedonia, and was significantly used on the Balkan Front during the Allied breakout from the Salonica bridgehead (September 1918).

This collectable piece stands appx. 16.5cm high x 7.25cm diameter across the base, and weighs 0.62kg.

                        It is base marked: "65 DM A R S. L 376 18" (1918)

                 A good collectable to add value to any militaria collection or Centenary museum.
                              Sorry - no International bids (airmail Customs difficulties with munitions sent by air)
