Exceptional giant clam shell over 1 meter wide 42"


Exceptional antique giant clam shell from a private collection, over one meter long, 106cm. I have seen several giant clam shells over the years, but never in this size or scale, due to the size, weight, layers upon layers, fossilising and pure thickness there is no issue in dating this piece to the 19th Century, it may even be earlier, but that is impossible to say. The natural colouring is truly exceptional in blue and grey tones, making this really a one of a kind piece. This amazing shell came from a private collection where there was three shells, as shown In the picture, I believe all three have been together for a lifetime as the rare colouring is consistent in all three. They are being sold and priced individually.

One of Nikki Page’s earliest recollections is of saving pocket money to acquire beautiful objects. This interest has blossomed over the intervening years into a business specializing in fine antiques and decorative pieces from the 19th and early 20th century.

As Nikki sells from her family home every item has to pass her obsessive attention to quality and detail. Countless hours are spent scouring at fairs, French Chateau and private home sales looking for rare and original pieces.
