The Sea Hath Its Pearls, by William Henry Margetson, hangs in my local art gallery, the Art Gallery of New South Wales. The AGNSW has a large collection of Victorian art, and is well worth a visit if you are in this neck of the woods.
Note the border of tessellated crabs on the gilded frame.
The round, port-hole-like format suits marine-themed paintings.
