I have two chairs (only one is pictured), the table, pitcher and mugs:

Chairs: 3 1/2" tall. Feet are four bullet heads with slight stylistic bend at the bottom. Support is from rifle casings (1915/ 1916 head stamps). The central medallion is the face of a WW1 German tunic button. The seat is from shell brass and copper is used for all of the support.

Table: 1 1/2" tall. Base is a 10 pfenning coin and the table top is seven 5 pfenning coins. Central support is a bullet.

Pitcher: 2" tall. Made from a rifle shell casing. The date stamp is too worn to read. The handle is copper.

Mugs (5 total): 3/4" tall. Made from rifle shell casings. The date stamps are 1915/ 1916. The handles are copper.

This Great War souvenir probably made a daughter's day when the gift was received.

    Recently, I added a third chair to the set.

    It was definitely made by the SAME maker as the other two that I have.

    It amazes me when these things come back together-- may have been sold to different soldiers almost 100 years ago!

    Really cool Scott. I wonder if these were made during the war or if they were part of the after war souvenir trade?
    It is really funny when collections or pieces come back together. Would make a really interesting article or CW discussion.
    As always, impressed with your knowledge and collections!

    Thanks AmberRose.

    I would suspect that these are war era pieces based on the construction and lack of battle name.
