Fabulous Vintage Shell Covered Jewellery Box Trinket Box Storage Box. Cowrie and Whelk? Sea Shells. Kitsch. Folk Art. Shabby Chic. Country Cottage.
Circa 1950’s – 60’s
A really impressive hand-made vintage sea shell encrusted wooden jewellery/trinket box. There are cowrie shells and what I think are a type of whelk, with an attractive orange lip to them. It has a lovely star design on each side. These shell boxes are getting rarer and harder to find – particularly in such good condition as this one (although three of the shells are broken). I don’t think this detracts in any way from its immense charm. The interior is brown baize and it has a hinged lid.
Including shells, the box measures approximately: 6.25″ x 4.5″ x 3.5″
or 16cm x 11.5cm x 8.5cm
Storage area of box measures approximately: 4.5″ x 2.75″ x 2.25″
or 11.5cm x 7cm x 5.5cm
A Totally Unique Piece
in Excellent Original Vintage Condition, with issue mentioned.
