Summer often includes trips to the beach, and usually at the beach we find crabs with the sea and sand, sea gulls and pelicans.
These creatures are odd as they dart from side to side in the sand, yet endearing at the same time. Because of our fascination with crabs, we find them imprinted on fabrics, in art, and as accessories. Who can resist the "crispy on the outside, tender on the inside" crab cakes and she-crab soup and steamed crabs? Tasting these foods we are instantly transported in our minds to the wonderful times spent on the water.
Maitland-Smith has a selection of accessories featuring these quirky creatures. Seen here is a cast brass box with inlaid tiger penshell on the lid. Deposit your rings or change, and they are beautifully kept out of sight.
For your summer parties, you can enlist as help these two saucy crabs who are busy holding up the Aged Regency finished tray with a beautiful marquety pattern and brass accents.
Below is the perfect clock for your sea-side desk. The cast brass crab is clutching a timepiece.
