Inner circle of ornate 1888 horse-shoe-shaped shell art wreath made by poet Ina Donna Coolbrith. The wreath was composed of sea shells interwoven with moss gathered at Santa Monica. The flowers represented include Mariposa lily, Shasta daisy, Copa de Oro, camelia, rose and other flowers. The wreath was a gift to Elizabeth Dalton Perry and William Hayes Perry. At the time of this photograph the wreath belonged to the Perrys' nephew John H. Crum of Santa Monica. The shell wreath is an example of Victorian era domestic crafts. [Note
