Description

If you have visited the "Real Old Seashells" section of my shop before, you know that I have an affinity for old shells & coral, left behind by beachcombers from another day & time. These sea finds only get better with time and old shells often have a patina that can not be matched in todays shell shops. This instant collection of thick, highly textured and patterned old seashells are beautiful together and wonderful paired with brown. (Listing is for the 6 shells only, bowls and white milk conch not part of this listing. Conch listed separately in my shop, shown with the ones in this listing in photo 5 .) You can see in photo 5 the beauty of adding a contrasting lighter colored shell to the group. Photo 5 best captured the beautiful dark shades of the 6 shells in this listing. The shells in this listing include 5 quahog clams and 1 whelk. The clams range in size from 5 1/4" (large charcoal gray clam, most likely a fossil) to the smallest clam, which is 4". The spiraled knobby whelk measures 4 1/4" tall. The striations of the whelk with hues of charcoal, tan, gray, and cream help tie in this lovely grouping as the clams have varying degrees of these same hues. There are lines, striations, knobs, evidence of predators, some chippiness...a plethora of sea texture earned by time spent being genuine salty dogs! Very hardy and manly display. It's really hot not to use brown & gray together, whether in home décor or clothing so these gems would look great displayed in a wooden bowl, on a wooden table or shelf.
The 6 shells listed in this listing are shown in photos 1, 2, 3, 4, & in photo 5 paired with the creamy white conch I have in a separate listing. Even the flip sides of all of these shells are so interesting. (See sampling in photo 3.) Great cabinet of curiosities vibe! I love what the sea and time do together! They are all very heavy for size & feel very substantial in your hand, not fragile at all and you can see how beautiful the juxtaposition of these are with the wood is! A beautiful artsy display that would fit on a shelf or by a bedside and also look equally great in a wooden or glass bowl with other sea things. !

Unique gift for the avid beachcomber, seashell collector, or beach/ocean lover!
Gorgeous for a cabinet of curiosities type display & beachy décor. Even if you aren't going for beach décor, seashells are timeless and makes great additions for any décor. God really is the best artist!
I can ship a lot of shells for only a few dollars more in a flat rate. Convo if you want me to do that and I can change listings!

I can get quite a few shells/corals in flat rate boxes so convo for combined shipping rate if you are interested in several pieces. I offer such a wide range of items in SeaSeaRider that I can not automatically put the discounts on my shipping charts. I do my best to combine shipping and save you moolah if items can be shipped together. If you don't want to wait and want to go ahead and check out, I will refund thru Paypal if I am able to ship items together safely for a savings. I do this all the time!
Visit my shop SeaSeaRider for a plethora of sea things, from old shells to bookplates for framing to sea vignettes plus letterpress, botanical and bird bookplates, my original sea themed art & sea jewels, books, ephemera, glass, and a boat load of vintage Christmas & Valentines, etc. Much to inspire you to decorate, create, or find a gift for the sea/beach or vintage lover in your life!
May you always have the beach to yourself. (:
