Title WW1 trench art paper knife
Nationality German
Period c 1914-18
Sold

This is a classic shell fragment, which has been fashioned into a paper knife. The hilt shows the groove for the copper driving band, which, interestingly, has a chequered finish, designed to hold the driving band in place while it shot down the bore of the barrel.

It is of German make, but the fragment could be from anywhere, including Allied shells.

Bayonet arrived safe + sound this AM Sat. Special delivery excellent again. Worth the few extra bob. To be honest it was better than I dared hope. I usually avoid polished bits like the plague!! Your price was a bit fierce!! - but a great marking I lacked... Please email me anytime you have anything that might be of interest.
