Verdun, 1914

Artist Unknown

WW1 Trench Art

75mm Artillary Shell

11 x 3.5 inches

There are few items that I question why they were passed on to a Thrift Store. This was one of them. The history of an item like this goes beyond imagination considering the conditions in which the soldier/artist created this piece of art.

Please leave a comment, especially if you have additional information on this piece of art or the artist.

  1. Mission Hill winery in West Kelowna had 3 or 4 of these for sale in their wine shop last summer. From what i remember there were several of them, ranging in size and detail. I believe they ranged in price from $60 to $200.
