Scallop Shell Keepsake Box
A stunning pewter keepsake box with a wonderfully textured and detailed scallop shell lid.
Special gifts for ocean loving friends.
These silver coloured handmade scallop boxes make a great gift for a Christmas, birthday, anniversary, graduation, engagement, bride or bridesmaid presents.
The scallop shell is the symbol of pilgrims as Medieval Christians often wore one on their hat or clothes. They also carried a scallop shell with them and when they visited churches, castles, abbeys etc, they could expect to be given as much sustenance as they could pick up with one scoop.
The scallop shell box is 5 cm (2”) in diameter and is presented in an organza pouch.
Every Glover and Smith scallop shell box is handmade from polished, Solid lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead in old pewter) and completely nickel free and food safe.
Because our designs are all created in Solid metal, the surface of your shell box will never flake like a silver plated scallop keepsake box. To clean, simply wash with warm soapy water.
All G&S pewter boxes are designed and made exclusively by us in our own workshops in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
