Grainger Pottery Scallop Shell

Winning Bid: $45.00

Item condition: New


Starting Bid: $50

Donated by: Sheila Mitchell and Grainger Pottery

This decorative shell casting of a Bay Scallop was created by Grainger Pottery.  It is a clay casting created from a plaster mold made from the actual shell which was found in Marion, MA. The shell was discovered four feet beneath the mud when putting in pilings for a dock. It was examined by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and carbon dated to the1600s. Today’s bay scallops are much smaller and usually live only three years – this one may lived as long as ten years to reach this size. Now, this unusual find has been memorialized in plaster.  With its decorative metallic gold glaze which has been fired to 2000 degrees, it will make a stunning conversation piece in any home. It measures 6.25″ x 6.25″ with wire hanger on back.
