Baby's milk feeder made of a pale cream conch shell. The shell has been smoothed to remove the outer surface, has a matt finish, and has incised lines following the natural curves of the shell. There is evidence of an old inscription on the outside of the shell, but this has faded and is now illegible.
These objects are only a part of our collections, of which there are more than 350,000 objects. This information comes from our collections database. Some of this is incomplete and there may be errors. This part of the website is also still under construction, so there may be some fields repeated or incorrectly formatted information.
The database sometimes uses language taken from historical documents to help research, which may now appear outdated and even offensive. The database also includes information on objects that are considered secret or sacred by some communities.
