Each coral is unique! Here are some interesting features about this particular coral-

~Is a beautiful off-white color with beautiful pink dots all over the back of the sculpture
~It is medium size perfect for additions to displays or for a mantle
~Can be displayed from different angles but best facing forward so you can see the birds nest and open brain coral
~ We estimate this coral was collected in the 1960s
Dimensions are: 15.5" L x 12" W x 13"HDecorating with Sea Shells and Vintage and/or coral is a very HOT Designer Trend. Coastal Styles never go out of season, and even if you don't live by the shoreline- you can display simple small elements of its beauty in any home style. I'm amazed at the amounts of beautiful sea life featured in top decorating magazines, even if it's not a Coastal Trend magazine, most photos contain some type of sea life feature in each photo! From a large shell on a shelf, to an entire room filled with the sea treasures!
We hope you display this coral with pride, coral is a precious resource, and now being treated like costly gems. We DO NOT support, nor sell, any New Specimens. WE ONLY SELL VINTAGE CORAL, and hope you will only buy the same.
