DISPLAY ONLY THIS IS A TOTALLY INERT DISPLAY ITEM WHICH HAS BEEN PERMANENTLY ALTERED AND IS NOT CONSIDERED A WEAPON UNDER THE LAWS OF ANY COUNTRY. DISPLAY ONLY ! THE MESS THEY MADE ENDING WW1 !!
THE TREATIES ENDING WW1 CREATED MORE WARS. THE COLLAPSE OF THE AUSTRO-HUNGARIAN EMPIRE CREATED MANY NEW CONFLICTS BETWEEN PEOPLES WHO HAD LONG BEEN SUPPRESSED FROM THEIR NATIONAL AND REGIONAL IDENTITIES.
IN 1918 A UKRAINIAN NATION WAS DECLARED IN LVOV. THE LARGE POLISH POPULATION REVOLTED AND BATTLES WERE JOINED BETWEEN IRREGULAR POLISH MILITIA CALLED THE "EAGLETS" AND THE REMNANTS OF THE UKRAINIAN SICH RIFLEMEN UNIT WHICH HAD BEEN A REGULAR MILITARY UNIT OF THE EMPIRE.
DIPLOMATIC EFFORTS TO END THIS FAILED AND IN MAY OF 1919 A POLISH ARMY INVADED AND OCCUPIED LVOV AND THE SURROUNDING AREA.
LVOV IS ONE OF THE MOST OCCUPIED CITIES OF EUROPE. ALL HAD TURN JUST DURING THE 20TH CENTURY. MUCH MORE VARIATION BEFORE THAT.
THIS PIECE OF EXTREMELY RARE TRENCH ART WAS MADE BY A POLISH SOLDIER IN MAY OF 1919 WHEN THE POLES OCCUPIED THE CITY.
IT IS MARKED LVOV MAY 1919 IN POLISH.
A BEAUTIFUL GARLAND SURROUNDS THE CASE WITH SHIELD AND DATES IN TWO.
THE SHELL IS A 76.2mm IMPERIAL RUSSIAN CONTRACT FIELD GUN TYPE MADE IN ENGLAND IN 1917.
IN 60 YEARS OF COLLECTING I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANOTHER FROM THIS LITTLE KNOWN WAR.

AS A 60+ YEAR COLLECTOR OF ORDNANCE ITEMS AND CONSULTANT I HAVE HAD THOUSANDS OF PIECES OF TRENCH ART COME MY WAY. OF THESE THOUSANDS I COLLECTED ONLY THE FINEST , RARE AND INTERESTING PIECES FOR MY PERSONAL COLLECTION. THESE RANGE FROM FANCY DECANTERS MADE FOR A GERMAN FIELD MARSHALL , TO ITEMS MADE BY A U.S.N. MEDAL OF HONOR WINNER TO A UNIQUE BOMBLET MADE FROM JAPANESE FUZES BY THE FIRST ORDNANCE SQDN. TINIAN AND PRESENTED TO COL. TIBBITS UPON HIS RETURN FROM DROPPING THE FIRST ATOMIC BOMB.

MY PERSONAL COLLECTION CONTAINS ONLY 50 PIECES AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM.
