Trench Art Artillery Shell Lighter

A nice piece of trench art being a lighter in the shape of an artillery shell.

The nose cone is removed to expose the revolving flint wheel and wick-the base we have not removed as this appears pretty tight and did not want to force off and mark the brass.
The flint has disintergrated over time but the wheel revolves freely and we feel sure that once the end cap is opened a new flint and fuel could be added if you required the lighter working.
The lighter measures approx 86mm in height.
