  • PRINCESS MARY 1914 GIFT FUND:- GIFT TIN (1)

    A good, grubby untouched example of the iconic 1914 gift tin. Tin is fundamentally damage free, with some wear to the gilt finish, with the lid being generally grubby and untouched, due to storage, with an area of ‘age blackening’. Tin edges and especially the corners are firm and split free. My own opinion (for what its worth) is that this is one of the most iconic collectables

    Difficult to say if this is ‘British or German’ made. An aluminium formed horse shoe, topped off with the fuse end of a 1916 German artillery shell, manufactured in Magdeburg. Substantial piece of workmanship, suggesting its a ‘heavy workshop’ made item. (It should always be remembered, that much trench art was immediate post war, cottage industry made, for battlefield tourists. Crude and heavy duty items suggest, troop made,
