SHIPPING DELAY. We are away on a buying trip; shipping will resume on October 28, 2019. This wooden box is heavily encrusted with a variety of natural seashells and lined inside and out with a unique reptile-textured paper.

The rectangular box, perfect for jewelry of keepsakes, is outfitted with a small round mirror inside. The sides are also covered with the same textured paper, which has faded to a pale pink. The shells include scallops, tiny turbans, augers, cockles, among others, and the lid is crowned by a fighting conch. The spaces between the shells on the side of the box are covered with small seashell shards. Great piece of coastal decor for the beach house or seaside cottage. We have other seashell-themed decor available here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/AlegriaCollection?search_query=seashell

APPROX. MEASUREMENTS:
Overall: 6 3/8 in. long x 4 5/8 in. front to back x 4 in. tall
Interior: 5 3/8 x 3 3/4 x 1 3/4 in.

CONDITION: Very good vintage condition, suitable for gift giving. There are three missing turban shells along the perimeter of the lid; the wooden bottom has a slight downward warp towards the ends; and the paper lining has curled in areas around the bottom perimeter on the outside. None of this detracts from appearance or use, but rather enhances the vintage character. See photos. Please note that the lid is heavy and the box will tip over if the contents are lightweight.

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE: Everything we sell at AlegriaCollection is vintage, meaning that it's at least 20 years old, often much older. Consequently, most of our items show evidence of previous use and, in general, this is viewed as adding to the aged character of a piece. We make every effort to accurately describe any flaws and encourage you to carefully read the description, particularly when purchasing vintage as a gift.
