Shell pictures and shell nosegays were popular with exponents of shellcraft amongst whom were principally genteel women including royalty. They may never have collected a shell in their lives but could buy supplies for their work. Shell work was popular on both sides of the Atlantic and later in the 19th century a form of shell work known as Sailors Valentines appeared. These consisted of two frames of shells hinged together so they formed a box which could be closed. The shells could be arranged inside in a formal two-dimensional method often including a heart design or a loving motto worked in the middle. It was at first thought the sailors made these themselves but it is more likely that they bought them as ready-made presents to take home after their time at sea.
