This charming little seashell purse would be great as a small coin purse, a jewellery holder or pill box. The shell has been polished on the outside, banded with gold-tone metal and opens with a simple hinge and clasp. Closes with a satisfying snap. 


We often see these described online as vintage or antique. And they’re usually quite pricey! 


Available as a tigerina shell, in creams and  pinks, or the earthy tones of a tiger cowrie. As you can see the tigerine colours do vary quite widely from pale white to creamy yellow.


Measure approximately 8cm by 7cm.
