This particularly nice example is of the double folding (diptych) type, with octagonal cases of Spanish Cedar hinged in the middle and equipped with a hook and eye for closure. Each of the two displays is composed of literally hundreds if not thousands of colorful sea shells meticulously arranged into charming vignettes...."

Women & The Sea
A sailor's valentine is made of one, or, more often, a hinged pair of octagonal wooden display cases lined with fabric. Small shells, seeds, or other materials are glued to the fabric, usually forming a colorful design. The name "sailor's valentine" comes from the fact that there is usually a sentimental phrase, such as "Forget Me Not," "With Love," or other sayings that we use on Valentine's Day. The shape is thought to come from old compass cases carried aboard sailing ships.

The Brass Binnacle
Sailor's Valentines 19th century artists typically used octagonal mahogany frames to incorporate a sentimental message of love for the sailor's sweetheart at home. Flower patterns, hearts and wind roses were popular designs used in the compositions. For this reason they became known over time as sailor's valentines. No book about nautical antiques, no marine auction at Christie's, or Sotheby's is complete without reference to original shell frames. Often you will see sailor's valentines selling between eight and eighteen thousand dollars.
