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.

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesnít really get swords.
