Item Description

19th century unique folk art Guernsey shell diorama display We are proud to offer a unique folk-art hand-crafted example of a seashell diorama. Displayed in a hand carved wooden frame behind its original glass case. With a poem insert named “Ocean Flowers” signed in pencil Aug 29th, 1882, and Guernsey. Filled with sea plants and wonderful selection of shells. This wall mounted display would look wonderful in a country house setting. A complete one-off piece of nautical folk art in completely untouched form and original condition. Size in inches: H 13 x W 14.5” x D 2” Period: 1882 Material: Natural Origin: United Kingdom Condition: Good Completely solid in structure and form, this authentic example 100 years old. The Age and use are reflected in the condition. Fading in areas as shown, all detail is firmly in place. A rare survivor in overall good condition for its age. This is an antique, true, well used item so please expect this to be reflected in its condition as the photos aim to show. Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas in this piece, therefore we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.
