The beautiful and incredibly constructed Glass or Venus Flower Basket sponge – size approx 22 – 28cm long. Please note some are slightly curved (banana shaped) also.
It is a popular wedding present in the Far East – because occasionally free- swimming young prawn like crustaceans get trapped inside the sponge, grow, and the produced hatched eggs swim out via the small openings to repeat the process elsewhere, leaving their parents trapped inside !
I have occasionally to offer some with prawn/claw remains inside – please enquire. (Cost £15)
Please allow for variations in shpae from that of photo, but they vary very little.
Just a few.
