Product Description

A hand-decorated Oyster shell ornament.

The Vintage Santa with Guinness Illustration Ornament is the perfect choice for those who appreciate the timeless appeal of classic holiday decorations. This ornament is a true gem for collectors and enthusiasts alike. It features a charming illustration of Santa Claus enjoying a bottle of Guinness. The artwork showcases the jolly old man in his traditional red suit, complete with a fluffy white beard and a twinkle in his eye. The vintage-inspired design evokes a sense of nostalgia, transporting you back to simpler times when Christmas was all about family, laughter, and good cheer.

The edge of the shell is hand-painted in gold ink, and the inside of the shell has a special pearl coating that shimmers through the image. The oyster shell comes with a satin ribbon to hang as an ornament, or it can be removed to display on a shelf/sideboard.

All are presented in an attractive eco-friendly gift/retail box with a window for easy viewing of the item. A removable sticker on the box states, “This is genuine Galway Bay Oyster Shell”.

The box interior has eco-friendly paper, which looks attractive and protects the shell from damage. Please note: These are wild natural shells from the west coast of Ireland, and as such, each one is different in size, shape, and markings. The average shell size is 2″ x 3″, with some shorter and others taller: some wider and others narrower.


Not only is this Ornament a beautiful addition to your Christmas tree, but it can also be used in other creative ways. Hang it on a wreath, display it on a mantel, or even use it as a unique gift topper. Its timeless design makes it a versatile decoration that can be enjoyed throughout the holiday season.


We believe that every shell has a tale to tell. Our oysters are from the west coast of Ireland, picked from the waters of the world-famous “Galway Bay” part of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.

Shells are genuinely one-of-a-kind gifts because no two are alike. They are tumbled by the wild Atlantic Ocean waves and shaped by the changing seasons, resulting in varying sizes and shapes. We work with what nature has given us. Variations such as; growth marks, ragged edges, chipped backs, and barnacles make each one special.

Every shell is individually picked, cleaned, prepared, hand-painted and decorated by our artists at our studio in Galway, Ireland.

The interior is finished with a smooth white or pearl coating and painted gold edging. The back of the shell is left natural. A clear semi-gloss coat enriches the shell’s colour and texture.

Whether you receive this as a gift or purchase it for yourself as a decoration, a memento of a trip, or for friends or family to mark an occasion or relationship, you are becoming part of this Oyster’s tale.
