This trench art lamp stands well over 2 feet tall and weighs over 25 pounds.

It is assembled from WW1 shells and bullets but was made post- WW1.

A lot of effort went into this one and it is full of Patriotic motifs-- Eagles (both engraved and cast brass flag toppers) and Stars (cut sheet metal). Additionally, there are 20 cut brass rifles to further decorate the lamp.

    O my this is a big one. Very interesting. Where did you find it? Meaning part of the country...
  2. scottvez scottvez, 2 years ago
    It came from a seller out of California (several years ago)-- set me back about $35 to ship it.

    The seller shipped in two boxes causing me to worry that only one would arrive!

    Interesting! I always wonder if there is a pattern to where a majority of WWI items are found.
    Always enjoy your posts!
    Hope you are doing well

    Now that is what I call a work of art, fantastic!

    Thanks again amber. Sometimes the origin of items will assist in determining facts about the original owner or lead you down an erroneous path.

    I cannot count the number of times I have seen a Civil War Union soldier identified as Confederate because it was bought in the deep South.

    In our mobile/ moving society, I am skeptical of using location to determine other facts on objects WITHOUT other supporting data or documentation.
