Trench Art is a term for a wide variety of decorative items produced during or soon after WW1. Ashtrays, matchbox holders, letter knives, model tanks and planes are typical examples. Often they are made from lead bullets, brass recovered from spent charge cases, and copper from shell driving bands. However, few examples were made literally in the trenches or made by soldiers.
We have a small stock of limited edition, out of print and rare art books on 20th Century British artists including Elisabeth Frink, Mary Fedden, Ken Howard, Ben Nicholson, Mary Newcomb, Winifred Nicholson, Henry Moore, Lynn Chadwick, Terry Frost, C R W Nevinson , Barbara Hepworth, Eric Ravilious, James Ravilious, Patrick Heron & Bernard Leach.
We are collectors of Great War medals and have groups to the Royal Flying Corps, Royal Navy and those won during land battles such as Gallipoli, Cambrai and the Somme.
