On Hold


A Model 1917 combat helmet that was painted with what appears to be a variety of combat scenes in an almost "folk art" style. Along with mountains and trees the solider painted a tank, a falling bomb, and a submarine. The painting was rendered in shades of green as well as black and pink. The helmet lacks the liner and has only a partial chin strap.
