Antique Shell Flowers Display

An Amazing Glass Domed Shell Flower Display, Mid 19thC.

What better way for a Victorian lady to show her leisure (or wealth) than by producing (or buying) such a finely detailed display of shell flowers decorated carefully and in such fine detail. The whole makes a glorious and fascinating centre piece -  a conversation piece and something to study and over which to marvel. If it’s not going to be shells then it could have been wax or feathers that made these Victorian masterpieces, but we think shells make the best display.

Enclosed under a 60cm tall glass dome.
