Framed is a 14x18 solid wood frame with archival glass are all natural Maine mussel shells which have been picked and washed and painstakingly matched up and arranged for a beautiful display. Anything ordinary can be extraordinary. You get the actual item pictured. This one is in a pinkish frame as many of the shells in this piece have a pronounced pinkish color to them. This is the only one like it. Of the thousands and thousands of shells I have touched, I saved the best and most unique ones for this piece. It will ship in a crated box or I will hand deliver within a 200 mile radius.
