Here is a really neat collectible. It is a hinged box, made from a real clam shell! The shells are gorgeous and feature a striated or swirled shades of pink and cream pattern. The edges of the shells are trimmed in brass and the hinge and closure are hand-hewn and fairly primitive.
The shells each measure approximately 2-7/8" in diameter. The box is in very good condition. We do not know the exact age of the box and feel it may be from the Victorian era.
A lovely box to display or protect a special trinket or amulet.
