    I bought this shell on a fair, and at first I couldn't spot that it was a shell, but my neighbour pointed it out for me, so i bought it, the seller said it had been a chair on a boat, but he couldn't tell for sure, have you guys got any more info on this?

    Nice stool Vegar , but i'm afraid it will give you a wooden ass too sitting on it for awhile :)

    Ya, the seller said it was a chair, but my guess would be that there has been a flowerpot on top of it.

    Raufoss are among others manufacterers for Nato, so this could explain how this ended up in Norway
