All items were purchased in Berlin,Germany, and the cruet set was purchased in London. The first ashtray has a base with plexiglass along with lucite, rare, but which would have been strictly European market, where trench art was in fairly high demand in shops during the war years. For their type the planes here are the largest and best that I have seen for sale.

Item #1: H. 34 cm, Table decoration around 1940, brass, getreppter, round pedestal on Plexiglasplinthe with applied copper propellers mounted plate in the shape of Africa with Rhodesian coins and vollplas

Item #2: Table decoration first H. 20 Century, mounted on a stone model of a single-engine propeller plane, wooden hull with nickel-plated metal applications, 25 x 24 x 18 cm

Item #3: Box available in England around 1945, brass box from sawed-off grenade sleeve, shank mounted in a cartridge with applied, fully three-dimensional plane, the shaft re-soldering, plane 23 cm.

Item #4: Cruet set in the shape of an aeroplane.

    This trench art is unlike any I have ever seen. Firstly and foremost they are larger pieces done with more skill and secondly as important, they weigh about 3 times what these sizes of trench art normally weigh. I was very surprised, and the first piece shown is the nicest piece of trench art that I have ever seen.
