    Pearlised Nautilus shell on silver plated coral effect stand.

    The natural shell is placed on the coral effect base which is cast in brass and silver plated.

    The Museum holds various examples of these opulent mounted nautilus shells, most within the Waddesdon bequest gallery. These pieces of art are handmade in a workshop in Cebu in the Philippines using shells purchased in local markets, which are mostly by-products from the food chain.
