A beautifully crafted decoupage clam shell featuring the work of Japanese printmaker Ohara Koson. He is widely known for his bird and flower prints but occasionally he would choose other themes from nature like we have here. Goldfish were first brought to Japan in 1502 by Chinese traders and they were sold to samurai and nobility as highly prized pets. In China, they had come to symbolize good luck and good fortune and this association continued in Japan where they served as a symbol of wealth, fortune, and good luck.

These decoupaged shells are hand-crafted with a fine level of detail. Images are carefully set on a base of white paint and sealed with multiple layers of lacquer to give a refined porcelain feel and look to them. A delicate edging of liquid gold leaf gives the finishing touch. Shell backs are left in their beautiful and natural state. These shells are thoroughly cleaned with soap and water - no harsh chemicals used.

Items ship in 1-3 business days and are packaged in a boho box ready for gifting. A gift note can be included upon request and we can ship direct to the recipient- no receipt included. Free domestic shipping via USPS First Class Mail. Upgraded shipping available for additional cost.

Size: These shells range in width from 5.5" to 6.25"

Ethically Sourced. We only use shells that have washed up on beaches naturally. Their former inhabitants have moved out. We never kill or harm any animals to get their shells. We also donate a portion of our proceeds to The Marine Fish Conservation Network as a way of giving back for the abundance and beauty our oceans so generously provide.

Please keep in mind that each shell is unique and was once home to a little animal. Any 'imperfections' in the shell should be seen as a badge of honor of this creature's journey from the deep to your door. The pictures are examples of the patterns only. Your shell will be 100% one-of-a -kind and the only one on the planet that will look exactly like yours.

Finished shell fronts are waterproof but it is recommended that shells not be immersed in water. Clean shells by wiping with a damp sponge or cloth.
