A fine watercolour depicting shells on pith paper. Oblong, 15.0 x 23.0 cm. Glass covered. In simple but elegant frame of 27.0 x 34.0 cm.

Delicately water-coloured images of shells by an unknown artist. The genera are usually very recognizable; species-level identification is less easy, but that of course has not been the aim of the artist. A few thin tears and some light spots are present, but not very distractive. A unique item.
