This lovely little box is created by two iridescent sea shells hinged with a brass frames. Most of these were originally intended to hold a rosary but they make wonderful little vessels to encase what ever you hold dear. The shells are natural with inclusions and coloring that make them ever so special. Age appropriate wear.
Our older vintage shell box measures two and one eighth by one and five eighths of an inch. The inside opening is about one and five eighths by 2'' with some depth.
