Trench art is truly amazing and displayed in the Smithsonian and museums around the world. No matter what war was fought throughout history; soldiers and civilians collected souvenirs. These collected items would be keepsakes of the war, considered trophies collected from certain battles or items from specific experiences from the battles they fought. Soldiers would collect shells and other war memorabilia and turn it into art. Some of this art would be primitive; but soldiers with skills would transform some items into amazing art. While this art was created going back hundreds of years, it flourished during the first World War. The abundance of items discarded during the war and turned into art became known as trench art. Trench art was created by soldiers in the trenches, in hospitals or while waiting to be sent home after the war. I never knew Trench art existed until I found this collection, it was the most amazing thing I ever saw. There were over 125 pieces on two tables and amazing to see the collection displayed together. This collection would be the main attraction in a museum or private collection; as it pays tribute to the soldiers who created these items on the battle fields during war time. The quality of work and detail that went into these items attached to the First World War will give everyone chills and appreciation for this era and its heroes. This is the greatest collection I have ever seen, and I have seen some amazing collections. Sometimes you may find a single item; but to find over 125 pieces in one collection is unheard of. It would take years to complete a collection like this and cost over $20,000. This is a once in a lifetime collection and we are sure you will love it as much as we did when we first laid eyes on it.
