A use for mussel shells

Spotted at Tate Britain. I think it was mentioned (or shown) in background info about a Turner exhibit: mussel shells used by 19th century artists to mix their paints. Try that myself at home.

At a vintage clothing show at Hammersmith Town Hall, see another use for a large shell -as a button holder. The buttons match the mother of pearl.
