Trench Art Flower Vases from WWI

Geometric vase 1917
Argonne Vase 1916
Grape Vase 1916
Pair of vases 1917 & 1918
The photo above shows two soldiers working on trench art. These flower vases are made from spent shell casings. They have a distinctive art nouveau style. The first 3 images came from a blog and book by Jane Kimball: TRENCH ART . The last 2 images are from Kitwood.com (World War One Trench Art). Fascinating stuff! You can read more about it on these two blogs.
