Shellwork Box
circa 1900
 
A good example of a very decorative large 'Shellwork' box - the wooden carcass completely covered with a variety of interesting shells. The inside of the box is lined with red fabric and divided into three sections. There is a more modern flower sticker under the lid. 
 
It is in good condition and there are no major losses and the box displays very nicely. There are some damages on a few of the larger shells, particularly one on the side and some on the top which have broken (see photos) but it isn't detrimental and is hard to spot as it is such a busy surface. 
 
Approximate Measurements :
Width : 11" (28cm)
Height : 4" (10cm)
Depth : 10" (26cm)
 
The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions please ask.
