Italian Trench Art

Another object for today… I confess it’s not an item of mine, as it belongs to my mother- in-law. This object belonged to his father, Marcello Venturini, it’s a pen holder dedicated to the 2nd reggimento Alpini (its number is below the eagle on the background). You can notice the time fuze, and the holes made to contain the ink bottles and the pens, which could be put horizontally or vertically. I just miss a big desk to put this impressive item on it!
