WW1 shell case napkin rings, depicting WW1 battle areas. Probably not made in the trenches themselves, but made from discarded and spent ammunition.

    Ain't it strange that we're all having to explain ourselves now? I think we all knew that these were made by local shops out of spent ammo but the term is almost generic isn't it ?

    This type is typical of the items made post war for veterans and families that visited the battlefields. They still fit the bill of "trench art" if created from shell casings.
