WW1 Hope Faith & Charity Trench Art Signet Ring

$1,000.00


Description

DATE: WW1, c.1915

This signet ring is an unusual example of WW1 Trench Art. It's been crafted from the aluminum nose cone of a German artillery shell, with an applied Hope, Faith & Charity motif on the face (likely added once it had been sent back home). Pieces like this were made by recuperating soldiers as they took time away from the front lines; working from what they had to hand, the level of craftsmanship is often nothing short of remarkable.
