What a gorgeous escargot! S/he is just so sophisticated! Really, how adorable is this old stock chenille snail? It hails from the 1950s. An old warehouse find, these snails were stored in their original boxes, so each is in fantastic shape!
The body is made of lettuce-colored chenille and features a wired tulle back and a smart (and genuine) mother of pearl shell. Our snail's googly eyes are perched atop two wired stems and can be easily maneuvered for that perfect position.
Mostly every one we have comes with the original Made in Japan label.
When posed as pictured, s/he measures just about 2 inches wide. Of course, the shells are natural, so their sizes vary a bit. They are so stunning - when you hold the shell up to the light and move it, the colors vary from aqua to pink to turquoise, just so lovely!
