Seashells

Discover genuine antique prints of seashells.

Shell collecting became popular in the 1700s. This was an era of voyages of discovery. Collectors eagerly sought shells from exotic lands. They often displayed their shells in curiosity cabinets, considered indispensable in well-appointed homes.

Naturalists illustrated shells in beautiful conchological (shell) manuals. The illustrations were usually printed as engravings or lithographs.

Choose from our big range of fantastic antique seashell prints. They are genuine antique prints.
