Seashells at auction - a mystery !!!






Last week I went to an auction, I love them.
There were many things that I would have liked but choosing things for an old stone farmhouse has to be thought about.







When I was looking at all the boxes beforehand and all different things in them I saw
 a big box of ocean shells.
I decided that was what I was going to bid for.





After about three hours the boxes came up for auction.
I was a bit concerned as they were selling many boxes together which I didn't want.
Luckily for me the box of shells came up on its own, luckier still I managed to put in the
winning bid. I was very pleased.




When I got back to the car I had a quick look inside the box to see the different shells




Many of them had old handwritten labels giving the name of the shell, in some cases where the shell was from and someone's name.





Then I noticed that some of the shells had circles either cut or scored into them.
I was looking forward to getting home and doing some investigating.
In my next post I'll tell you all I've discovered.

  1. How beautiful! I love the look of old shells. Relics from the Sea! I wonder if the scored ones were for making buttons??
    I look forward to seeing more!
    Blessings, Doni
