Gulf Coast Sea Shell Christmas Ornament, 3 1/2 inches, from the Merck Family's Old World Christmas Glass Ornaments collection. OWC 12465. (2016 New Release)
This wonderfully designed beach shell glass ornament depicts the Junonia shell, a hard to find item that is part of a sea snail found in deeper ocean waters. Per Wikipedia, it's such a hard find that "people who find a Junonia while shelling on Sanibel Island, Florida, often get their picture in the local newspapers". It is the shell of a species most commonly found along the Gulf Coast from Florida to Texas. This lovely ornament is made of blown glass, hand-painted, hand-glittered and finely detailed on all sides.
