This trench art Masonic Vase was made out of a 7.5 mm artillery 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 16 inches tall and if the bottom were plugged it could easily hold flowers.

A special "Thanks" to Brother Steve Kapp (kalbo on eBay) for submitting the pictures and description of his wonderful vase.  Steve is a Master Mason and affiliated with the below Masonic bodies:
