Home and Garden, Antiques, Books, Art, And All Things Beautiful….
This was a wedding present to a bride in the mid 1800’s….The shells were carefully wired together to create a basket and flowers….
Another basket made of shells plus a compote filled with antique french flower "buds" used in making bridal crowns.
Wow…I’ve never seen shell art of that level. It’s absolutely lovely.
You are too kind! Thank you…..
thank you for posting, so jealous, so inspired – excuse me , I need to go find beautiful jars beautiful and time machine….
Thanks for visiting and for the sweet compliments. 😉
Absolutely gorgeous – I especially like the beautiful antique basket… wow!
Exquisite! The Victorians have a lot to teach us today about style with grace. Thank you for sharing with all of us.
