This trench art German spiked helmet was made from a cast aluminum base with shell brass ornamentation.

The helmet is about 2" long and 1 1/2" tall.

The actual spiked helmets were probably the most popular souvenir item for American soldiers to ship home, so this may have been a small sized and more manageable replacement for some soldier!

I have several other pieces of trench art with the spiked helmet-- so if interested, be sure to check out my other items on Collectors Weekly.

Thanks for looking,

Scott
