The Shells


A colourful set of shell reprints based on a collection of original lithographs from the early 1900s. Conchology has played an important part of natural history studies across the last few centuries, with shell popularity increasing during the Victorian era where shells adorned grottos, furniture and art.

This series is hand framed in bottle green textured mouldings with a playful burnt orange accent mount border. The collection is available as a full set of 8, a curated set of 6, a curated set of 4  - or singles.

 All our reproduction collections are limited in number and originate from antiques specially sourced by Petri Prints.
