A Twitter Find

I don’t see too many miniature things on Twitter although master miniaturist Tatsuya Tanaka still posts his daily creations (https://twitter.com/tanaka_tatsuya). So I was pleased when I came across a tweet by Aline Roberts with this image:

She explains it is a tea set made from used bullets during World War I. Here is her explanation (in response to a thread on interesting family stories): “My French grand-father spent 4 years fighting during WWI, and he got really bored. He took the used bullets and shells and moulded it, and we still have a tiny tea set for dolls from war trenches.” Thanks, Aline, for permission to use the image here. A lot of miniatures have interesting backstories.
