|This is a wonderful piece of folk art that probably dates to the middle of the 20th century. The frame is elaborately adorned with small seashells, pearls of varying sizes, rhinestones, both red and aurora. The large shells are decorated individually, with pearls and rhinestones in between the spines on the shell and in the opening. The glass and the backing is new but practical, since the frame can stand on a table as well as hang on the wall. All the pieces seem to be there and it is in fine condition, although the varnish has yellowed some, but most of these early pieces are slightly yellowed. It's really something to see! Size is 8" by 10" with a 4.5" by 6.5" sight dimension.|
