Shellwork Box
circa 1900
 
A good example of a very decorative 'Shellwork' box. The small box is completely covered with a variety of interesting shells in pretty patterns. It has a hinged lid and stands on 4 small brass feet.
 
It is in good condition for its age and displays well. There are a few small losses and some slight damage on a few of the shells (see photos) but nothing untoward and any damages are hard to spot in such a busy surface. 
 
Approximate Measurements :
Width : 5" (13cm)
Depth : 3 1/2" (9cm)
Height : 3 1/2" (9cm)
 
The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions please ask.
