Polished Brown Cowries x 4
Beautifully polished cowries and the price is for all 4 measuring approximately 5 cms. There are many different species of cowries but these are one of our favourites.
Foxhead Seashells x 3
A limited offer for three good sized foxhead seashells – these are sometimes referred to as tulip shells and at approximately 10 cms in length you are getting 3 for the price of one and we are not sure how we do it!! Lots of similar limited offers online for the next few months!
These beautiful small shells measure approximately 2.5 inches each and can be found washed up on remote beaches in the Phillipines. They have a lovely caramel colour which varies from batch to batch and a hard back with knobbly bits! Great for our crafters and a customer recently made a beautiful shell mirror with these shells as the border – something a little more unusual and one of our favourites.
5 to 7 cms
Ornamental Carrier Seashell
Aptly named carrier shells ornamenting their dwellings and measuring approx. 5 cms across with stones, other shells and even sponges attached to their shell…. all joining the party! Renowned for their beauty and usually found in and around the Philippines (Western Pacific).Those being “carried” provide a defence for the carrier shell and contribute to a unique and exquisite sculpture. From the family Xenophoridae. We try to exhibit as many seashells as possible in our shop so if you are in striking distance of London or the West Country, our little bricks and mortar shop is full to the rafters and worth a visit. We also try to respond to text messages within a couple of hours on 07711247762.
