These silver coloured handmade scallop shell boxes make a great gift for a Christmas, birthday, anniversary, graduation, engagement, bride or bridesmaid presents.
Scallop Shell Symbolism
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 or monasteries because 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. However, if you select gift wrapping, the keepsake box will come in a gift wrapped black presentation box.
Every Glover and Smith scallop shell box gift is hand crafted from polished, solid lead-free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead content in old pewter) and completely nickel-free.
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 Glover and Smith pewter boxes are designed and made exclusively by us in our own workshops in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
