This amazing hand made silver Tortoise is cleverly constructed by using highly polished limpet shells to create the shell of the tortoise.
Initially sculpted by hand then cast in bars and then heavily silver plated, the tortoise body is fitted with it’s exotic shell back made from limpet shells. The shell back is hinged to create a box, which is lined with faux snake skin.
We silver plate onto solid brass and then lacquer to give a long lasting durable finish that protects against tarnishing and prevents over-polishing, this in turn maintains the original beauty of each item. You only need to lightly dust with a soft cloth and the item will remain an object of beauty.
All Objet Luxe shells and items made of shell mosaic are given a final production coat of lacquer which will protect it for a very long time. We recommend a gently dusting to care for all shell products. Be careful not to scratch the shell surface and do not use chemicals or abrasive cleaning agents. You only need to lightly dust with a soft cloth.
