INERT WW1 FRENCH BARBELE GRENADE.
Very rare grenade in very good condition.
The wooden handle shows some signs of age wear but is solid.
The metal body still shows signs of corrosion and has some small holes in the metal body.
The wooden top cap
The handle and the grenade body come apart but they fit together.
There is signs of wood shrinkage and both top and bottom are held on with small nails that are certainly not period.!!!!
.Certainly a crude construction which reflects the desperate situation France was in WW1.
Its primary use was to destroy barbed wire.
Overall height 29cm.
