Here for sale is a great antique brass ammo shell. Stamped to the base is 'Polte Juni 1909, Magdeburg'. The Polte Ammunition Factory, Magdeburg, Germany were an important manufacturer of ammo during the first half of the 20th Century. The shell has been cut in half so perfect as a plant or bottle holder.


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
