I could not resist buying this piece of trench art, my 1st :-) The price was really nice and I was blown away by the artistry. It is all brass and the previous owner purchased it while serving in the UN in Israel in 1970. The wife told me that her recently deceased husband bought it from a Bedouin tribesman on the Golan Heights. That being said, it has some amazing engraving with so many scenes it would take 100 pictures to show them. I believe there is some Arabic writing. Gobs of animals, lion, camels, birds, antelope, and horses.
It was made to be a lamp which I chucked right away. Anyhow, I figured I would post a few pics and see if any one has a picture of what the projectile looks like. I also wonder who may have fired this, Egypt, Syria? Maybe even Israel using a captured Russian Tank?
