Opulent Capiz Shell



Capiz shell is one of my favorite materials. It is lustrous and opulent and has the ability to make quite a statement, especially in the home.  I inherited a gilded coffee table with a capiz shell inlay from my great grandmother that I absolutely  cherish.  It is from Palm Beach, Florida circa 1950. This material is still readily available and can be found in many pieces for the home like a lamp shade, coffee table or place mat.    I hope that everyone has a wonderful Monday!
