Georgian Shell Fireback

The Georgian Shell Fireback displays a simple elegance indicative of the decorative arts created during the Georgian Period (1714-1800).

The unadorned cockleshell, or scallop shell was especially popular with furniture makers of the period in Rhode Island. In olden lore, the cockleshell was a badge and attribute of a pilgrim.
