Shell Edge 12

Shell Edge 12


Undulating scalloped edge with impressed wavy lines. Very similar to Shell Edge 01, except that the shell edge does not descend directly from the scalloped edge.  A white, unpainted space lies between the scalloped edge and the painted, molded lines.  The molded wavy lines are only partially painted.
