Wow, it's absolutely breathtaking. All of those different shapes and colours. I love the big exhibits, they are fantastic. Imagine how amazed people must have been to see it when it was originally created. CJ xx
Oh wow, what an incredible display! Thank you for sharing Amy. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.Jane xx
Yes, the comments above...I echo their words, truly amazing.That bleeding tooth shell, I have never seen or heard anything like that. I just looked it up...also amazing!
Oh Amy, these are really lovely, especially the last one. I also like the shells with a cameo engraved into them. When I was in Florence I looked at many of these, but could never decide on one to buy! Basildon Park really is a great place. xxx
Those are some beautiful shells, and I'm amazed at what they've done with them!
Wow! Some of that work is SOOOO intricate! Just beautiful. Have a wonderful day, Amy! blessings ~ tanna
They're wonderful! Love the face of the man.
Those bleeding tooth shells are fascinating! xxx
Wow! Glowy! What an incredible display!
Hi Amy, I just popped by to say thank you for your kind words. I have been coming by to read your many posts - you're so prolific! - but haven't felt up to commenting. That said, we are both doing fine and getting into the new routine. I still worry but, like you, I'm a natural worrier anyway! x
That is so pretty !!This is a permanent exhibition at Basildon Park ?
I remember your last post about this fabulous display. Such a beautiful collection.
The shell carvings are AMAZING!
Astonishing! Would love to see them ! X
This is a very unusual "find", and thanks for sharing. Hard to imagine how many media people will use to express their art.
What fabulous shells and shell-work. I have seen the interior of the shell gallery at A la Ronde, but the shell room as Basildon is something else! Margaret P
Those bleeding tooth shells are a wee bit yucky - if that makes sense! :o)
Very beautiful....Cheers!Linda :o)
Lovely. I enjoyed your last post about the shell room too. It really is wonderful.
Beautiful. I especially like the pearl ones. I guess that's pearl.
Thank you so much for sharing more with us Amy! I find this room to be very magical because when I was a child my grandmother gave us a box of shells from all over the world. Sea shells have always held a special spot in my heart and I just love that they have put them all so beautifully on display here!! Here is to another great week!! Nicole xo
Gosh, what an impressive display and such intricate workmanship. Wonderful.
There is some incredible workmanship in some of those decorative pieces. Lovely displays too.
I remember your last post on the shell room and what an amazing collection it is. Never seen anything like it before- some of those carvings are extraordinary, the skill it must have taken to create them. xx
Lovely, what a collection and lots of patience by someone xcx
That's beautiful Amy
What a stunning room, such a lot of work has gone into making those pictures. I just love finding shells and collecting them on the beach too. x
So beautiful! the carved shells are so intricate :) xx
