Rare Vintage Conch Seashell and Pansy Planter
$50.00 plus shipping
This is a magnificent conch seashell and applied pansy planter. This is a work of art. The conch is heavily gold gilt, and has luster applied to the inside. The pansy is hand crafted and applied to the shell. The pansy is purple, yellow, and has green leaves with veins and hand painted accents. It measures 4.75 inches high and 9.5 inches long. I does have some damage, It has chips to two of the leaves, on the lower part is missing. One of the bottom pansy petals has a very small chip to the under side. It has age glaze crazing throughout. I still feel this is a masterpiece and would be gorgeous in any home. It is unmarked, I do not know the age or maker, but it is older. This is a quality piece.
