This beautiful desktop picture frame is a wonderful piece of Trench art. Made from the shell casing of an 88cm FLAK round with a decorative marble base featuring two projectiles on either side of the frame. The stampings on the back of the casing are very interesting and include the year of manufacture, the caliber, the Waffenampt, etc. Everything is mounted to an unusual multicolor marble base with a felt pad on the bottom to prevent scratching to desks or other furniture.
When I obtained the piece there was no photograph in the frame so I took the liberty of providing a scanned photo of my Great-Grandmother for display purposes until the new owner can find an appropriate replacement. A very unique item that would look great on the desk in "The War Room"!
