Superb Old Trench Art Chromed Fighter Airplane Carrying 2 Bombs Ashtray:
This is one one of the most interesting and well made pieces of trench art I have had in a long time. It has all been chromed. This is not cheap to do. The body of the fighter plane,the stand holding it up,the base of the ashtray is all made from different sizes of artillery shells. Plane itself measures 6 1/2 inches long and the wing span is 7 inches long. The entire piece stands 8 1/2 inches tall. The alabaster base measures 10 1/4 inches by 7 inches. The ashtray base is made from a large artillery shell base surrounded by what looks like 30 38cal or 45cal bullets. The 3 cigarette holders are made from 1920 British foreign coins. There are also 6 other bullets on the base which hold a pack f cigarettes and matches.
The propeller does turn however when I unscrewed the screw holding the propeller to the front of the fighter plane I noticed the one of the propeller blades was separated from the other two blades. It needs just a light solder to put it back together again if you wish. This is just a very minor fix. I just screwed the propeller back in again tight to hold the blades together to take the pictures. The entire piece weighs about 6 to 7 pounds. Please look at all 10 pictures which shows the really neat piece of trench art. The quality and time it took to make this piece is superb.
