World War II era German “Trench Art” Ash Tray


This is a World War II era German “Trench Art” piece manufactured out of several shells into an ash tray. The main component of the base is marked “Augsburg, 1945,” on the side and “P 32 1938” on the bottom along with the original German armory stamp seated above the number “6347.” There is a .50 BMG round that has been welded to the middle of this tray, and three resting spots for cigarrettes or other smoking implements have been made of out pieces of other spent shells.
