So there you are, deep under the waves, enjoying a couple of mimosas with your Sunday brunch, and along comes a naked lady driving a giant conch shell drawn by a seahorse. Well, it’s enough to put you off your cocktails for a time, isn’t it? Fear not (and drink up!), it’s just Marcella and her fabulous Conch Carriage out for a drive! And though she tends to dress down on Sundays, you’ll never catch Marcella without her nautilus hat. It’s been rumored that if you offer to buy her a drink, she’ll race a school of groupers for your amusement – quite inexpensive as entertainment goes.

Perfect as a companion piece to Emma the Nautilus-naut.
