Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clam shell! I had one, but indulged in another. Really nice. Hummm. Maybe another.
Date published: 2019-07-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks real! I bought the large version of this clam shell, and it was larger than I thought. I was going to put it on my kitchen bar/island with the plants like shown. Instead, I copied the orchid arrangement with some silk flowers and added to my entry way. I just love it and people think the fake air plants in the arrangement are real. I'm thinking of getting the real ones. I'd recommend being aware of the dimensions before deciding which size to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful decoration! I copied the entire concept from the catalog with the succulents in the shell for my dining room table in Florida. Looks fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coolest deorating piece! Love the giant clam shell. We live in Florida so it is appropriate, but still very cool! Good quality, good functionality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks really good in my entryway Looks real, even though it's not. I'm putting succulents in it like in the photo. Unique. Very happy with my purchase. Wish it was less expensive, but what are ya gonna do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful realistic looking shell. I had been looking for this exact item. There were a couple negative reviews so I did not order. Finely ordered after reading positive reviews. I was thrilled when. My order was delivered. I will be ordering a second. Beautiful item, everyone thought it was real. The real ones go for $1800 and up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and so summery! This is a large shell and is beautiful to set on your porch especially if you have a beachy theme. I love it!
Date published: 2015-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great neutral accessory for any room! This clam shell is a beautiful addition to a room. I use it in our sunroom filled with books covered in Ballard wrapping paper. For a surprise element, my clam shell sits under an end table . . . love it! Think I'll order another one! Thanks, Ballard.
Date published: 2015-04-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I finally got my clam shell. I have been eyeing this clam shell for a while, but I thought it was too pricey. When I saw it go on sale, I immediately ordered one and could not be more pleased. I just like the look of it. Actually, I have been pleased with all the products I have ordered from Ballard Designs.
Date published: 2015-04-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diggin the Clam Shell It is as exactly as depicted. LOVE it!! Great décor, conversational piece @ a v-good price. Have not yet put it to use as a creative practical piece as per some of the uses described but plan to do this spring/summer or perhaps create something of my own.
Date published: 2015-03-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Centerpiece I purchased this for our patio table; our table is really huge. This is a big shell and I planted succulents in it like the picture shows. It took a lot of plants to fill it; I planted it at the nursery....good thing as it took way more plants than I estimated. It is really beautiful, I have had lots of complements on it. We will enjoy it for many years!
Date published: 2014-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product looks very realistic. I love this large clam shell and so does everyone who sees it. It looks like this real thing and is large enough to hold my stack of "to be read" books. It's a perfect coffee table item.
Date published: 2014-07-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is just as described I received this clam shell today, and I love it. The size is perfect, and I really appreciate the felt pads on the bottom of the shell to help protect my table. Even my husband was impressed. The description and pictures show it perfectly. The pearlized finish inside is done more to look like the inside of a shell. It is not overly done and looks perfect. I put a variety of shells into mine, and expect to change it out for the seasons. I would recommend it to anyone.
Date published: 2014-07-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a unique item! We have a four seasons room that we have done elegantly casual with tropical touches. The clam shell was the perfect accessory for our décor. It adds a unique design for our succulent plants.
Date published: 2014-07-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This is one of many of these Giant Clam Shells that we have ordered. Just as all of the others it is fantastic.
Date published: 2014-07-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Giant Clam Shell I saw a Giant Clam Shell in a shop down south and thought I had no way of getting that home plus it was quite expensive. So I thought I could make my own so when I arrived home there was my Ballard's Catalog waiting for me in my mailbox with a Giant Clam Shell. I put together a really beautiful centerpiece for our outdoor picnic shelter for our coffee table. Everyone loves it and I did it for less than half the price of the one I saw earlier. Thanks Ballard's for another wonderful item to make our house a home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT I've had my eye on this piece for quite some time. At $129, I wanted to make sure I loved it. I do. Exactly as described and came in excellent condition. Ballard's products are high quality. You get what you pay for. This piece makes a statement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly as i wanted perfect. arrived on time and in great shape. buy it
Date published: 2013-02-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations! I put off purchasing this for awhile having not seen it in person, but it arrived today and I could not be more pleased! It is perfect for our dining room -especially since we have an ocean theme. The added felt pads on the bottom were a huge plus and will prevent scratches to the table. If you have had your eye one this for awhile, you won't be disappointed if you purchase this. Lots of centerpiece ideas in the Internet to make this shell ideal for all seasons.
Date published: 2013-01-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!! We used the clam shell for our daughter's Hawaiian theme wedding. We placed the favors for guests in it. We also used it at the brunch the next morning to hold the rolls...I have many uses in mind for it!!! So glad I found it!!
Date published: 2012-08-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accent! This is a really nice piece. It looks fairly realistic but not fragile like a genuine shell. The interior has a pretty pearlized finish. I could fine many uses for this. Very pleased.
Date published: 2012-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product is quite unique. We haven't actually gotten to use the clam shell yet. We are planning on putting some succulent plants in it and putting it out on our deck. It was delivered intact and looks beautiful.
Date published: 2012-05-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive I was looking for a centerpiece for our outside lanai, and boy did I get one! This shell is huge, heavy, and beautiful. I'm so pleased. Worth the money.
Date published: 2012-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Conversation Piece!! This clam shell almost looks like the real thing but it's not as fragile as actual shells would be. I loved the picture with succulent plants put inside - so I took my shell to a local nursery and we created a living piece of art!! The price is also quite a deal. Real shells can go for a minimum of $600! I love it!
