If you look closely at the seashells in this Bunny Williams drawer, they have slits in them because.....they are place card holders.
If you Google seashell place card holders, you will find lots of wedding and party websites selling them for beach weddings and the like. They are very reasonable - these at Party City are under $7 dollars for 6.

I have not ordered these and many websites offer them - this is just an example.
The ones that really intrigued me are the one with the silver slits, so I went down the rabbit hole and ended up with a neighbor - sort of - the business is Philmore USA based down the road in Naples.
The owner has a fabulous background including John Hardy which forced me to get out my John Hardy jewelry and I wore a favorite piece yesterday.
The silver slots are sterling and he has a fantastic selection of these seashell place card holders. I am trying to choose my eight favorites and am having a difficult time narrowing it down. This is THE most elegant collection of seashell items imaginable and there are several pieces I would like in addition to the place card holders. Here are a few examples from his wonderful shop.
