1978.3113.1 Serviette Ring

Serviette Ring from Armentieres

Serviette rings are a popular type of trench art. They tend to be a simply designed circle of recycled brass with either a coat of arms and location, like this example, or a corps badge. This serviette ring was made in France and brought back as a gift to the soldier’s young sister. (1978.3113.1)
