Sailors' Valentines

In the 1800’s, sailors traditionally returned home from the islands bearing shell mosaics as homecoming gifts for their sweethearts, which became known as “Sailor’s Valentines”. Antique collectors revived interesting Sailors’ Valentines in the 1930’s and since then, their intrigue has continued to grow.
