In keeping with my non- shell trench art theme, here is an iconic WW1 piece of trench art: The propeller hub with a clock.
This one was embellished with the dates and crossed guns-- they don't look like the infantry rifles, but appear to be more like shotguns.
The clock is of the era by keyless auto clock company.
Unfortunately, the hub was mounted with the prop data on the bottom, so I cannot make a definite call on what type of aircraft this prop was on. It is similar in size and construction to other identified WW1 prop hubs in my collection.
