Vintage French Seashell Baking Shells - Set of 12 - Serving and Baking Dishes
The sea hath fish for every man. William Camden
Just like the quote above about a fish for every man, so has the seashell, a purpose for every activity. People have been using shells for both utilitarian purposes and aesthetic design since the world began. Highly adaptable and incredibly beautiful, nothing bridges the gap between the past and the present quite like a seashell - a true gift of nature both ancient and modern all at once.
Ideal serving dishes for luaus, tiki parties, nautical weddings, beach parties and seaside picnics, you'll find a bevy of uses for these vintage French baking shells. 100% natural, these shells come from the abundant seascape of Florida. Each one is completely unique and visually interesting with color variations, striations and some even have pecking marks caused by birds or other sea creatures.
Adding a touch of whimsy to any tablescape, your lobster salad or your crab cake, your shrimp cocktail or your ceviche will never look prettier when served in a shell. Perfectly balanced to sit still on a plate (thank you lady nature!), these guys are never in danger of toppling over and their large size offers the ability to rest comfortably in the palm of your hand.
