Large Nautical Decorated Seashell Box
Large, repurposed, nautical box adapted from an antique lap desk. Decorated in a sophisticated pattern of seashells including muscles, scallops and abalone. This seashell box features a shell framed painting of an American sailing ship with a flag flying the stars and stripes. The back of the box is covered in paper with a harlequin pattern and the inside is rustic compartments for storage or work. The box is originally from The 19th Century and Gael Ryan’s decoration is done in The Later 20th century.
