NOW SOLD

 

A Victorian shellwork diorama, in the shape of a round porthole. Inside the glass 'porthole' is a chromolithograph of St Michael's Mount in Marazion, Cornwall, in front of which is an artfully arranged display of shells and seaweed, creating a 3D effect to the view.

 

These shellwork dioramas were produced in the late Victorian/early Edwardian period as souvenirs of coastal towns and seaside locations, and were often bought by sailors as presents for their sweethearts.
