Shello! This dazzling white and gold shell ornament provides an elegant accent to your tree.

In 1766, Martha Washington acquired from London upholsterer Philip Bell the materials needed to create "one dozn. Chair bottoms." Over the next thirty-six years, she carefully cross-stitched a scallop-shell design she herself possibly created.

"Martha Washington's Shell" is beaded on the back. The ornament, with gold hanging thread, is approximately 4 ¼" x 3".
