Seashells have been used as craft materials for hundreds of years. During the late 1800s and the early 1900s, Victorian crafters used seashells to create and embellish home objects. Vases, frames and boxes were popular backgrounds for seashell crafts. Seashells were also used to create elaborate shapes and designs for wall art and other ornaments.
This decorative seashell box, circa 1950-1960, is covered with a variety of types, sizes and colors of nature's seashells. The box measures 6 1/2" in length, 4 3/4" in width and 2 1/2" in height. The box is completely lined and the bottom covered with a red felt material. The box is in very good vintage condition with several smaller shells missing and several minor chips. I have several other seashell boxes in my store.
