SHIPPING DELAY. We are away on a buying trip; shipping will resume on October 28, 2019. Lovely and dainty, this little keepsake or presentation box is a souvenir of Oostduinkerke, a seaside town in Belgium, which, interestingly, is the only place in the world where shrimp fishing is done on horseback. The round box is made of cardboard and completely covered with natural seashells and seashell fragments, some of which have been colored. Most of the shells are tiny Turk's Turbans. A unique detail is the three little seashells that serve as feet. "Oostduinkerke" is written on one of the seashells on the lid. There's a lot of shimmer and iridescence. This would make a wonderful presentation box for a special occasion celebrated by the seashore. We have other seashell-themed decor available here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/AlegriaCollection?search_query=seashell

APPROX. MEASUREMENTS:
2 3/4 in. in diameter x 2 1/4 in. tall

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition with no damage; suitable for gift giving.

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.
