Description & Application:
UK Sourced natural Atlantic mussel shell for crafts and interior/exterior decoration, window dressing and promotion work.
The shells are favoured for shell grottoes and mosaics as they have a distinctive and contrasting colour to many of the shell species more commonly fished from Atlantic coasts.

The shells can be used as serving dishes for nautically themed events and parties, whilst the shells have been prepared and graded to food standards, just like buying any food plate wash thoroughly before use. (contained within a mesh bag, or in the cutlery tray they will happily survive a cycle in the dish washer !)

Use of Shells for Food Presentation.

Seashells like these mussels make for the best presentation due to their bowl-like shape and the ability to clean them thoroughly on all surfaces.

Sea shells offered by OnLine Shells for presentation are are made naturally form the mineral Calcium Carbonate. We are not aware of any other compounds or minerals within the seashells that would preclude their use as food presentation dishes.

Seashells have a complex layered construction, making them extremely strong, light weight and thin. In many cases seashells are stronger than ceramic plates, but be aware that chipping can occur with thinner shells, especially blue mussels and river clams.

Whilst seashells are dishwasher safe we would suggest that hand washing may be more practical. Online Shells have been thoroughly cleaned, however, post cleaning the shells are stored under warehouse conditions and appropriate measures should be taken commensurate with established food hygiene practice before using seashells for food presentation.

Sea shells are non-porous, however, deterioration of the surface can cause pitting which could potentially harbor bacteria if the shells are multi-used.

Seashells can be used for cooking and presentation of hot food. Do not put seashells in the microwave.

Seashells can also handle the cold. When used as display pieces in the chill cabinet repeated cycles of washing may dull the seashells’ colour. This can be restored with a very light coating of cooking oil.

Safety Information: Not suitable for children under 36 months as the shells may splinter and present a choking hazard.

Classification: Mytilus edulis Linne
