We found this stunning antique 18th. Century museum piece, this is a sailor's memento shell work box. Inside the box there are two large pieces of different colors of human hair. the box is made from thick pressed paper/cardboard material surrounded with thin layers of wicker and shell with silk which is a bit shared through the years. On top a beautiful young lady is pictured with her tiny dog. the box inside is covered with faded silk with embroidered flowers. this came from a French collector who had this amazing memento collection, this was one of his prime pieces. this was once a cherished piece from a sailor a long time ago. this piece has been passed through by the sailor's family members. The box is aged and fragile but a must have gem for the collector or a museum. Sizes: 5,91 inch x 5,91 inch x 2 inch
