Trench Art Lighter
I managed to snag two of these amazing trench art lighters. They have a lot of wick left and just need butane. They are gutted shell casings.
You may have heard of trench art but do you know what it is or why? During WW1, warfare included digging trenches underground, maybe 5 feet deep, so men could hide in the holes. Sometimes soldiers would be trapped in their trenches for days while shooting and bombs were deployed. Come WW2, technology improved so much that trenches barely concealed soldiers and so the military tactic fell out of practice. During the time soldiers were stuck in trenches, they made art that they brought back home with them. We fondly call the art, trench art!
These pieces were made by a soldier stuck in a trench during warfare, pretty cool.
