Antique Embossed Brass Jardiniere was produced from a spent cannon shell casing.  Commonly called "trench art" as soldiers during World War I spent many hours idle in the trenches, and whiled away the hours with various artistic endeavors.  This example features two intertwined initials, indicating that the soldier was missing his beloved and hoping for a quick end to the hostilities.

Circa 1916
