Title Pair of Prussian trench art ashtrays
Nationality German
Period c 1916
Price £35.00

These are slightly unusual trench art products, inasmuch as they appear to be made from sheet brass, possibly cut from a shell case, but the unusual decorative feature is the centrepiece which in each case is the central device from a Prussian waist buckle, one with a deep crown and one with a shallow one.

The condition is OK for their age, but with plenty of nicks and dings to the brasswork, as one would expect.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

testimonials

My order arrived this morning, thanks for the prompt delivery.

Two excellent original pieces, I must say.

Buckle is in minty condition retaining so much detail esp plummage on eagle's neck and chest, like to see those 'creases' on the legs also... a beautiful example of an early O&C buckle.

Belt is very interesting, rather thin, CROUPON stamped and also behind the tongue...maybe Allegmeine but no SS markings as you state. Beautiful piece none the less.

Thanks for a speedy transaction Chris, I am very happy with my purchase :)

Collected bayonet this morning, all safe & sound as described. Been looking for one as good as this for years. Thank you.
