177 'Bull Shit Creek' Trench Art Ashtray - Click for the bigger picture Sold'Bull Shit Creek' Trench Art Ashtray - I am currently thinning out my own collection and this one has to go! On offer here is a super chunk of trench art in need of a new home! It is made from a German shell case base which is dated dated 1936 and carries a clear Waffan amp stamp together with various other manufacturing marks. The shell casing has been mainly removed and the remaining base has been converted into an ashtray and features a match box holder in the centre. Whilst the history of this piece has been lost down the years it has punched into the side the words "Bull Shit Creek" and it would clearly have a story to tell if it could only talk! It measures 5" across the base (128mm) and strands 2.5" high (64 mm).
2379 Ale House Tankard - Click for the bigger picture SoldAle House Tankard - Original tankard finely engraved to the front "Falcon Inne." Manufactured in brass, the tankard would have been used in a public house and the engraving would effectively be an early form of property mark to ensure the tankard remained on the premises! It features a hinged lid and is generally in great used condition showing just minor age wear as you would expect, but overall has great patina and probably dates from the late 19th century. Capacity looks to be a pint. It measures 6.5” (16cm.) high. Whilst not fitting into either our normal Nautical and Aeronautical theme it just exudes character and we had to buy it!
4192 British Graham Land Expedition 1934 - 1937 Full Field Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldBritish Graham Land Expedition 1934 - 1937 Full Field Goggles - These come complete with original fitted case indicating manufactured by Theodore Hamblin Ltd. of Wigmore Street, London. The BGLE was organised so as to map the west coast of Graham Land to explore alternative passages through the Stefenson Strait rather than through the eastern approach that proved so disastrous to Shackleton. The goggles are fitted with salvog yellow lenses which were used on the Everest expeditions and gave maximum protection to ultra violet light. Some fogging to lenses and associated age wear but a possible unique and historical set of expedition goggles.
PC168 Swastika Motif Hat Pin - Click for the bigger picture SoldSwastika Motif Hat Pin - We believe this fine example probably dates from the 1020's when the swastika device was considered a symbol of well being and predates its adoption as a symbol of the Nazi Party in the 1930's. This hat pin has an arts & crafts feel to it and features inset clear and emerald coloured stones. It carries no makers marks and we'll leave it to the experts to decide on its age and origins. Pin measures 9" (23cm)
1621 Trench Art Shell Case Ashtrays - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Shell Case Ashtrays - A matched pair, each inset with Italian 2 lire coins, one showing the head of King Vittorio Emanuele III, while the other shows the reverse side of an identical coin featuring the fascist eagle and dated 1940. The shell case ends carry no identifiable markings and are finished in chrome. They are extremely heavy, so please check postage with us before ordering. Diameter 6" (15.5cm)

These commence on the 8th November, 1942 with American landings in Morocco and conclude on 13th May, 1945. The tankard has been manufactured from brass salvaged from the actual battle fields in North Africa and makes a wonderful momento of that critical campaign in WWII. Height 4.75" (12.5cm)
