Antique Erotic Bronze Clam Shell | Early 1900s Underground
Regular priceSale price
Here we have an original antique bronze clam shell that opens to a very detailed swinger scene. Erotic shock...still recovering. The hinged shell opens to reveal a woman on the left shell in her birthday suit, and a man on the right shell ready to party, straight up. (Yeah, I said it.). This unusual trinket has the all the details, and the devil's in the details. If you want to know why this was created and how you use it, just use your imagination. Straight from the erotic underground y'all. If you use this as your calling card, expect a few laughs and a few black eyes along the way.
Once you get past the scene (if you ever do), you'll see that the condition of this rare, unusual bronze piece is unreal. It's top of the line. If you can find another example of the bronze out there, it is hashed, and the detail is lost leaving the scene a pile of mush. Heinous! Check out this rough example.
The rare erotic bronze comes out of a prominent estate in Rochester, Minnesota. They had major money, and they used it to collect some of the rarest items from all over the world. Nothing but rarities and quality. I like to think this one just put a smile on their face....(ahem). I believe the bronze was made in the 1920s or 30s. I think it's very possible it's even earlier.
The rare bronze clam measures (closed) approximately 2 inches long by 1.75 inches wide and is approximately 1 inch tall. When open, the clam measures just over 3" across. The patina on the outside of the shell is perfect for an old bronze. The inside is almost spotless, There is a small bronze oxidation spot near the left elbow of the female. The hinge is solid and tight from very little use. I wouldn't doubt if this was piece was rarely handled. The piece does not magnetize. Please see all pics as they are part of the description. Get ready to blush...(or not?).
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO boxes). Free shipping on the rare underground bronze.
You'll be the life of the party because I guarantee no one will have party favor this good. Bonkers.
