Box with shell, c.1600-25, England, silver and scallop shell, Ashmolean Museum.
From the Ashmolean:
This is the only silver box of this form known to incorporate a real shell. Claw and ball feet and lion’s mask handles occur as early as 1589.

These amazing photos were taken by Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov, who adapted his camera in order to achieve remarkably close-up focus on individual snowflakes after they’ve fall on the ground. He illuminates his shots with a flashlight and the background texture is dark wool fabric.
Alexy’s images reveal the unique geometric shapes of each snowflake with such astonishing clarity that it’s easy to forget just how tiny they really are. Visit Alexey Kljatov’s Flickr stream to view many more of his remarkable snowflake photos.
