World War 1 Masonic 

Trenchart Vase from 75mm

Artillery Shell Casing

             

This Masonic trenchart vase was hand-hammered from a 75 mm artillery shell casing.  It was stretched and hand hammered in high relief with the Star and Square and Compasses into its current shape.  This kind of folk art metal work is now a lost art.  It is 13 inches tall and if the bottom were plugged it could easily hold flowers.
