Would Make a Gorgeous and Romantic Gift – with a Lovely Piece of Jewellery Inside!
A beautiful hand-made vintage sea shell encusted jewellery/trinket box. A wide variety of shells have been utilised to make this – including fabulous iridescent trochus shells. I have seen a lot of these shell boxes, but heart shaped ones are very hard to find – and this one is so pretty with its iridescent green trochus shells. The interior is red flock and it has a hinged lid. All of the shells are present, although a few are broken along one side, and most notably there is a chip on the large shell, top left (please see final photo). There is also a small split in the wood underneath, from when it was made and the foot was nailed on. I don’t think these imperfections detract from its immense charm, but it has been priced accordingly.
Including shells, the box measures approximately: 5.5″ or 14cm diameter
Storage area of box measures approximately: 9cm x 9.5cm x 2cm depth
A Totally Unique Hand-Crafted Piece
