Antique WWI "Unity Is Strength" Vase

Antique WWI "Unity Is Strength" Vase

$195.00

As WWI ravaged Europe, grand alliances formed between various countries as leaders jockeyed for control and power.  One of those alliances formed at the start of the war, as a result of Germany's invasion of Belgium in 1914. It was that invasion that pushed the then-neutral Belgium to join the original "Triple Entente", the friendly alliance of Great Britain and Ireland, the French Third Republic and the Russian Empire. This newly-formed four-country grand alliance sought to balance the threat from the "Triple Alliance" of Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Kingdom of Italy.

Produced in England in 1914 to commemorate this alliance, we are pleased to offer this magnificent antique vase. Featuring images of the leaders  - George V of England, French President Poincaré, Russian Czar Nicolas II and Albert I, King of the Belgians, this handsome vase is decorated with regal heraldry, the flags of the four countries and the rallying words "Unity Is Strength".

In very good antique condition, the vase is a fascinating memento from the Great War and is sure to take pride of place in your home.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 8 1/2" x 4 3/4".
