Pair of German WW2 10 cm Artillery Shell Trench Art Vases

Lovely handcrafted

These artillery shells were fired during WWII by a German 10 cm Fieldgun.

The Skoda houfnice vz 14 ("Howitzer model 1914") and  Skoda houfnice vz 14/19 ("Howitzer model 1914/1919") were 100mm (3.93 inch) mountain howitzers made in Chechoslowakia by the famed Skoda works.

The 10 cm M14 Feldhaubitze was a dual-purpose field and mountain gun used by Austria-Hungary during WW1. 

Between the wars it was used by Austria, Italy and Poland. Captured weapons were used by Nazi Germany under the designations 10cm leFH 14 and 10cm leFH 315. It served as the standard Italian medium howitzer as the Obice da 100/17 modello 14.

These shells are probably confiscated in Chechoslowakia, because they are not stamped by German Waffenamt.

These memorial trench art Shells are probably made just after the war.These two pieces of elegant and masterful artwork are transferred into beautiful vases. One vase is marked with: "Amsterdam" and a floral design.
