One of the exhibits in the planing stage right now will be called "Light Artillery" and will feature this type of trench art.

I love stuff like this.

20mm is probably the smallest I've seen with a full size light bulb. It looks like a 75mm base?

This is the answer from the gift-giving boyfriend :) Sorry I'm more in it for the aesthetics than the actual components!

 

"Honestly, I'm not sure, except for the .45 ACP cartridges around the bottom (whcih are all WW2 dated - I checked when wiping it down and putting in new electrical guts). I THINK it's a 105mm US artillery case cut down for the base with a 40mm cartridge for the shaft (!). You could measure the width of the projectile on the shaft to confirm the width..."

Thats awesome!.....now you need to top it off with a helmet shell for a lampshade!.....mike thumbsup.gif

 

Maybe I'll get that for next Christmas ;) Seriously though, is there a huge demand for trench art lamps. In my girlie mind I like for the stuff I collect to be usable and not have to sit in a box and never see the (not too bright or direct of course :) light of day). Trench art is pretty durable and in that category.
