Germany: WW1 SUPERB HAND PAINTED RELIC ENTRENCHING TOOL WITH 'STOSSTRUPP 1917' BATTLE SCENE. Consists of a ground dug relic entrenching tool shovel head (no wooden handle) that has been treated with rust stabiliser and then has had a battle scene hand painted over it. Scene is titled 'Stosstrupp 1917'. Shock troop 1917 clearly in reference to the feared German assault teams in the later part of the war. In the forefront of the battle scene there is a fully kitted out infantry soldier in the process of throwing a stick grenade. Nice detail. Reverse of the shovel head has been painted a field grey colour. Shovel head shows heavy pitting and a few small holes under the paint work. An eye catching item of original artwork for display. Grade II-
