    Yes, it is,indeed, trench art. It looks to be made of heavy aluminum-could have started life out as any number of things, though, so impossible to ascribe a definite origin. A shell case, would be my first guess. A neat thing, though, and a nice little find!

    Makes me think of the top of a canteen, cut off and ground down.

    Yup trench art or maybe made in a POW camp!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    It remembers also more WWI trench art ring to me. The material (aluminium) was often from the shot down airplanes but of course other available metal was used too.

    Aluminium was a relatively rare pre-WWII , being expensive and difficult to manufacture .
    It was used extensively in the aircraft industry and some weapons production .
    You'll find it used in Theatre made knives , trench art etc . Due in part to it's rarity at the time .
    Cheers Chris
