    Description

    Theodore Roosevelt: Amazing Carved Conch Shell. 11" long and 5" tall carved conch shell with portrait of Theodore Roosevelt alongside a laurel wreath, a billowing American flag, three-leaf clovers and daisies. The colors range from pink to white. The designs are reticulated, appearing on the exterior portion of the shell. One can peer through the openings and see the conical interior. The tip and back side depict carved leaves and flowers. The reticulated carving likewise reveals the interior. It's quite a heavy piece and has two drilled holes on the outer lip. This is likely a unique artwork.
