ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Collector of over three decades, Jane Kimball is the author of TRENCH ART, an extraordinary work that has become a vital reference to many. I am grateful to her for sharing her encyclopedic knowledge and enthusiasm which is apparent through her dedication to the field. Sadly, Jane passed away this year (2016) but she left us all an enduring legacy in the form of her classic book, TRENCH ART - An Illustrated History, which will remain as a valuable reference for generations of current and future collectors.  Thank you Jane, RIP.

I benefited a lot from Ed Banks' knowledge in militaria and thank him for his major contribution to the accuracy of the descriptions. His editing suggestions have been much appreciated.

Al Harvey's sound comments about trench art collecting widened the scope of my curiosity .

Finally, the gathering of so many vases would not have been possible without the support of my family and friends in Europe, who often found themselves temporary guardians of antiquated pieces of weaponry.
