Product Description

A charming naively made original WWI piece of trench art, in the shape of an officer’s cap.

The cap is made from a base of an 18 Pounder Artillery shell case and is to be used as an ashtray. The brass has been embellished with extra pieces of copper and 2 bullet heads (7.92 German). The front cap badge is made by an Allied General Service button, with the Royal British Coat of Arms. The base of the shell case (which is the crown of the hat) is profusely stamped with ordnance and armoury numbers, including the date of 1917. The broad arrow within a C, denotes that it is of Canadian issue.

Size: 11 x 10.5 x 6.5 cm (4 ¼ x 4 1/8 x 2 5/8 inches)
Weight: 770 g
