This is a beautiful selection of Vintage Black Cup Coral with small suction style indentions throughout the front of the piece. Commonly called black cup coral or sometimes known as a disc coral, it is called that due to its unique shape. It is called a "black" cup coral because of its grey/green tone when alive.

Decorating 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!
