Very unique, standing figure of a young boy holding a beautiful, real seashell above his head that has a porcelain insert for holding ink. There are no ink stains. Attached to the shell with a chain is a circular piece of the shell that serves as the lid. The overall height is 6 & 1/2 inches. To my eye, it is in mint condition. The shell's outer surface is what I would expect, but I have included several photos of all sides. I have not cleaned, or polished it. It looks French to me, but there are no marks. A rare and beautiful piece.
