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. I came upon another old collection recently and this glorious beauty was part of that. Very heavy & substantial for its size, measuring just shy of 5" long. (I'm still researching for name as it is not one I have or have offered before.)
This seashell is knobby, striped, & swirled with some parts that have been worn & textured by the elements. I love what the sea and time do together! The inside still has the distinct ribs at the opening and is cream and white with some subtle hints of light brownish yellow. Lips is pristine with the grooves still intact. Near the top on one side you can see the beginnings of coral growing. May have lived in a reef environment or the coral could have started after the shell was no longer alive. (It's too pretty to use the word dead, lol) That area is just about 1" by 1/4". Perfect for a shadow box but big enough to display by itself and be handled. Not fragile due to weight and thickness. A beautiful little artsy piece 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. I have a shell this size on my bedside table for a nice "take me away to the beach" moment when I wake up!
I love that something that looks like a work of art comes out of the vast & powerful sea! It is actually very hardy feeling in your hand and isn't that fragile.
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!

Check out the "old shells & coral" section of my shop. 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 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. (:
