Handcrafted by noted Nantucket artist, Elizabeth Braun, this cherry wood framed piece encloses an intricate arrangement of shells from Nantucket beaches and the Caribbean. Sailor's Valentines were purchased by sailor's from Pacific Islander's in the 1800’s during their long whaling expeditions. The shells and trinkets represented in these special boxes were reflections of the exotic areas the sailor's visited. They were given by the sailor's to passing ships heading back to home ports as a valentine to loved ones. A true Nantucket tradition kept alive by artists such as Braun, whose one-of-a-kind treasures are cherished for their exquisite, handmade beauty.

  • Designed in the late 1960’s for Nantucket Looms, our classic boatneck sweater never goes out of style. Originally designed to be worn without a shirt underneath, the boatneck can be worn in a more fitted fashion or select the next size up for a looser fit. The saddle stitch shoulders and high boatneck collar are distinctive to this sweater. Unisex sizing.
