Name: Charonia tritonis
Triton is the common name given to a group of very large sea snails, which are named after the Greek god Triton, who was the son of Poseidon, god of the sea. The stunning markings on the shell make each specimen truly unique. We often think that the markings look similar to combed marble designs made popular in book-craft in the nineteenth century. (For example see our image above)
Triton Shells in History: From ancient times, people of many different cultures have removed the tip of the shell, and used the shell as a trumpet.
Sea Shells introduce a sense of fun into any room, bringing it to life. They are tactile, quick to make friends and always have a story to tell – perfect for bathrooms, studies and living spaces.
Break the mould , feature sea shells are stunning in combination with other objects, and we don’t just mean mock weathered seaside clutter ! Give them space, less is more. Pick out colours of apricot, coral pink and natural cotton and combine with ceramics, books and treasured hasbeens. The best thing with feature shells is that unlike redecorating a room they are not a big commitment. You can move them around until your interior design heart’s content, but don’t forget opportunities in outside garden rooms and beach huts.
The shell is SELECTED: The seashell is a carefully chosen piece with a photo that shows the actual specimen you will receive.
