As Beach Wedding plans begin to take shape for Spring, we are reminded of the beautiful Squamosa clam half shells. These striking, hardy shells are perfect for event tables, ready to filled with fresh or dried flowers or with a colorful mix of sea glass and smaller shells. Moreover, they are dishwasher safe and easily sanitized for food service, topped up with candy, nuts, or dips.
For household use, these are just right for a Coastal home, to hold soap or jewelry, or to catch change and the odds and ends that collect on nightstands. Bring the freshness of outside in with an air fern and bits of driftwood. Maybe your favorite little girls need a Mermaid-themed party with treats delivered in these undersea beauties!
One of several large clam species native to the shallow coral reefs of the South Pacific and Indian oceans, these are recognizable by their large, fluted edges (“scutes”) and by their relatively small byssal opening. Varying coloration of the mantleranges may be found in browns, purples, greens and yellows, and may be arranged in elongated linear or spotted patterns.
These are currently available in three sizes and each order consists of a single half-shell. We also stock and have access to similar shells. For instance, the “bear paw” is a medium-sized item with orange or brown coloration. By special order, we can even provide large shells, suitable for bird baths or planters! Please let us know what your needs might be so that we may help you find just the right ones!
