Paua shell sculpture or dish, New Zealand


SKU: 8256

An unusual modern sculpture or dish, made from a tumble polished piece of genuine paua shell that I brought back from a visit to New Zealand.  It is mounted on a short pedestal on a gold coloured base.  A friend commented that even as a sculpture, it would end up with keys or coins in it...

7/8 inch (2.2 cm) wide, 5/8 inch (1.6 cm) deep, 5/16 inch (0.8 cm) tall.
