I have two chairs (only one is pictured), the table, pitcher and mugs:
Chairs: 3 1/2" tall. Feet are four bullet heads with slight stylistic bend at the bottom. Support is from rifle casings (1915/ 1916 head stamps). The central medallion is the face of a WW1 German tunic button. The seat is from shell brass and copper is used for all of the support.
Table: 1 1/2" tall. Base is a 10 pfenning coin and the table top is seven 5 pfenning coins. Central support is a bullet.
Pitcher: 2" tall. Made from a rifle shell casing. The date stamp is too worn to read. The handle is copper.
Mugs (5 total): 3/4" tall. Made from rifle shell casings. The date stamps are 1915/ 1916. The handles are copper.
This Great War souvenir probably made a daughter's day when the gift was received.
