This is an amazing and gorgeous find: a gorgeous handmade artisan piece by Bovano of Cheshire showing a Nautilus and a Whelk shell in beautiful warm hues made with glass and copper enamel.
It is 7 1/2'' (18.5 cm) wide and 4 1/2'' (11.5 cm) high.
Pieces of Bovano usually go for higher prices (120-150$), this piece has some enamel damage hence the lower price. The damage is not clear at all and can only be seen in the close-ups. On the wall, it looks perfect.

From the artists of Bovano of Cheshire in Connecticut, this handmade Starfish, Seashell, Sand Dollar in Beach Colors Enameled Copper Wall Art is crafted by fusing colored glass particles onto solid copper and fusing the two together under extreme heat in a kiln. The resulting sea life wall sculpture features rich and nuanced shades of soft peach, neutral sand, cream, and bone, careful detail inspired by real sea creatures, and a sleek, glossy finish. Handmade in the USA at Bovano studios in Cheshire, CT.

Work of art hand made by skilled artisans
Vitreous enamel fused to copper
1600 degree kiln fired
Conceived, designed and manufactured in the USA since 1952

About Bovano of Cheshire:

Bovano of Cheshire, renowned U.S. wildlife and nature enameled copper sculpture company, was founded in 1952 by artist Jim Bower. Bower began his lifelong trade experimenting with a unique form of art that involved fusing powdered glass to copper. For many decades the Flood family has grown the product lines of Bovano into an extensive array of stunning enameled copper wall sculptures and desktop sculptures featuring various birds, sea creatures, flowers, objects, and botanical elements. Each Bovano of Cheshire piece is still produced from start to finish in Cheshire, Connecticut.
