Pearls of wisdom
Oysters are strongly linked with Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty. They symbolise eternal love, as Aphrodite emerged from the sea on the back of an oyster shell.
Pearls have often been called "The Fairies of Water" and also signify beauty and love. They are also regarded as symbols of power, perfection, luck, hope, happiness and honour.
Our oyster shell bowl is 10 cm (3.9”) long and the mussel spoon is 11 cm (4.3”) long.
Each oyster bowl & spoon is packaged in a presentation gift box with care instructions.
Every Glover and Smith oyster shell bowl 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 bowl & spoon will never flake like a silver plated oyster shell bowl. To clean, simply wash with warm soapy water.
All G&S pewter nautical designs are made exclusively by us in our own pewter workshops in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
