I was asked to see what info could be given about this beautiful piece of trench art. If anyone has info feel free to share

The info I have is that it belonged to her great grandfather who made the knife in this post for his son http://www.usmilitar...f-roger-a-hawk/

To me, it appears to be a WWI 75mm French shell case, probably made in March 1917.  These were often sold after the war to battlefield visitors.
