This is a wonderful piece of trench artwork. It shows the attention that was paid to an approximately 20mm shell. The casing stands 4 1/2″ tall. Its edges have been fluted. The shell is then mounted on THREE different bases, which have been combined into one. The top base is made of glass. It is then mounted on a black marble base. The black marble base is in turn mounted on a metal base. It appears to be brass, as is the shell casing. It is a very fine example that would look very gorgeous with a single rose bud.
