OK5250 - Old Shell Box
Old Shell Box £12 Postage £2.79
This is a lovely old piece, the shells are quite dark with age, giving a true antique look.
There are many different shells here, arranged in a pattern on all four sides and the lid and then piled high with a few more.
Between the shells, the bare spaces are covered with glittering sand.
I've never seen this before and it's an especially pretty detail.
Four more cockleshells are ingeniously used for the feet and there's a neat little metal handle to lift the hinged lid.
Inside, the box has been lined with embossed wallpaper adding to the richness of the textures.
With only two or three missing shells, it's an amazing survivor of a charming seaside tradition.
Size: 16cm x 10cm x 10cm.
