What a novelty done in shell work! Only Shell Piano Box I've ever seen. The box measures 6 1/2" long, 6" wide ( across the front keyboard) and 3 1/2" tall. Made of plywood, then covered in a variety of pretty shells. The top lifts to show the inside lined in clean red felt. A nice size opening to hold trinkets. Instead of hinges, the top and bottom are connected by a piece of fabric.
Condition is vintage good. Only three missing round shells on the backside. Could use some careful cleaning. This novelty shell Piano Box would make a fun gift to any Piano teacher.
