Framed shell compositions dating back to the 1850s used to be called Valentine Shells. Sailors commissioned local artists in the Caribbean ports and took the products home as a sentimental message of love for their sweethearts. Flower patterns, hearts and wind-roses were popular designs used in the compositions.
