World War One Dinner Gong*
Very individual dinner gong suspended from a turned Oak frame, the gong itself made by utilising the brass shell casing from a WW1 twelve pounder gun.
The detonator has been removed and a ring is now attached to the pin, allowing the gong to hang from a brass hook fixed in top rail of the frame.
To one side hangs the padded striker with its turned Oak handle.
The original brass disc denoting the gun type has been inserted into the centre of the rail.
Raised on four shaped feet, solidly made and extremely unusual – we’ve certainly never come across one like this before.
Hand made sometime during or shortly after the Great War and measuring approximately 41 cm high by 34 cm wide.
