 These highly lustrous and colorful carved blacklip Tahitian pearl shells measure approximately 4 to 5 inches in diameter. The front side is polished and has been hand-carved by a Polynesian artisan on Tahiti, while the backside is sanded, natural shell. 
The shell stands on two cowrie shells and three holes have been drilled in the shell for drainage making this a perfect soap dish.
Colors range from shimmery graphite to bright greens, aubergines, golds and white.
Each shell is unique with the design changing slightly depending on the artist's whim and shape of the shell. Every one is a piece of art in its own right.
