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.
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.
