Usmc Marine Us Vietnam Phu Cat Air Base Engraved Trench Art Loving Cup 68-69 Vtg


abramsantiques Store


US air bases in Vietnam were ringed with defensive installations, including US Marine Corps artillery. US Marines in Vietnam passed the time between contacts by creating "objet d' art". Many Leathernecks crafted "loving cups" from spent brass artillery shell casings, usually engraved with the man's name and duty station. Back in "the World", these would have been considered a bit garish, but in "the 'Nam", they were strictly high class. This USMC Marine US Vietnam PHU CAT AIR BASE ENGRAVED TRENCH ART LOVING CUP is in good condition, with moderate scattered patina and age darkening around the body, top rim, and bottom, some scattered denting around the top rim, and with heavy age darkening evident at the inside (ALL pictured). Otherwise, the loving cup is in fine shape, with absolutely no cracking or other damage. It was custom crafted from a spent brass artillery shell casing, and is stamped "EMPTY" at bottom, along with the date of manufacture, "1944". Most interestingly, the loving cup is beautifully personalized and inscribed along the upper front. It reads "VIET NAM / PHU CAT / 68-69", over a touching poem reading: "TO THE MOST WONDERFUL GIRL WHO MARRIED ME / HERE'S A WISH AS NICE AS CAN BE / HAPPY ANNIVERSARY DARLING / LOVE GORO". A fine example of a rare, original USMC Marine US Vietnam PHU CAT AIR BASE ENGRAVED TRENCH ART LOVING CUP.
