For sale is this sweet victorian shell frame with an antique postcard displayed inside. The postcard is original to the piece and amazingly, no shells are loose or missing from the frame. The postcard features a little girl running from a crab and a little boy brandishing sword in her defence, so cute! The frame measures 6 x 7.5 inches and has a hanger on the backing. This type of folk art is also referred to as a "sailor's valentine" because the first ones were produced by sailors and given to their loved ones in the late 1800's. Thanks for looking and please feel free to contact me with any questions!
