Two brass shell casings decorated in trenches by soldiers who collected them near their trenches.
The military-artists were Italian, and the casings are an Austro-Hungarian (the one full of hallmarks, including the double-headed eagle), and German, with the inscription BERNDORF half-covered by lead and traces of the Wilhelm’s eagle.
These two works are entirely different, the only common feature is the double flaring at the base.
The Austro-Hungarian casing features floral patterns and was engraved with great patience.
The German casing also features floral patterns but is embossed with a complex and remarkable pattern with reliefs on the entire surface as well as rings with eight-pointed stars both on the base of the decoration and 1 cm from the top edge. There is also an embossed title block with some text.
Weight (both): 2200 grams.
