The main body is modelled in the form of a scallop shell, with lobed sections and is palely gilded. Each shell stands on three unusual cast scroll legs and displays a cast rear, scroll, hooded section which would have been used to carry the shells. This rear section displays a vacant circular cartouche. Shell dishes are very scarce from Ireland, these being the only ones we have offered of this very unusual design. The dishes are marked under the lip of the main body. The underside is also engraved with their original scratch weight.

Height: 2.25 inches, 5.63 cm.
Width: 3.9 inches, 9.75 cm.
