Pair of French WWI Trench Art Brass Shells


This pair of First World War French trench-art artillery shells is very finely executed with repoussé ivy tendrils and two blank cartouches.

They have the added interest of being from the legendary French 75 mm field gun, known as the Soixante-Quinze. Even more interesting, perhaps, is the fact that it gave its name to a famous postwar cocktail mixing gin and champagne, which was thought to have a punch like an incoming round.
