Description

DATE: WW1, c.1915

A WW1 trench art bayonet brooch. Items such as this were made by soldiers on the Western front, usually while they were recuperating away from the front lines, using whatever materials they had to had... In this case it's brass, plated with silver metal. It's remarkably well crafted, given the crude tools that would have been available.
