    These large artillery mugs or steins seem to have been popular departure or farewell gifts to officers during the VN War. I encounter them on a regular basis.

    This particular example is made from a 1969 dated 105mm artillery shell casing. The casing has been worked into a mug or stein shape with a large brass handle.

    The side is engraved with " LT C. A. Russell, IV Corps, POLWAR Advisor, Viet Nam, 1970- 71".

    See my other items for numerous other trench art items from the Spanish American War through the modern era.

      Thanks for looking david! Trench art from this era is usually simplistic in design, but not available in the same quantity as WW1 and WW2 trench art items.
