This large 4" diameter artillery shell casing has been fashioned into a WW1 era hat.

The hat badge is made from a British tunic button and the strap buttons are made from similar British cuff buttons. The chin strap is fashioned from scrap copper.

The final product is striking in its realistic appearance. Based on the residue in the bottom it was most likely used as an ashtray.
