Sea Glass Photo of the Week
A Topper, Stopper or Stem?
Nikki Scotland: I am a fairly new collector from Scotland and I probably go to the beach at least two times a week if not more. While I was walking along one of my favorite beaches one day to look for sea glass, I looked down and this beautiful piece was just sitting right there waiting for me.
I'm pretty positive it is a stopper, but every single stopper I have collected has never been multi-colored like this one. The red on the bottom of the piece just makes it one-of-a-kind, and it is now one of my favorite pieces I have in my collection. I mean just look at that red sea glass!
Journal: That's a fantabulous find Nikki! While a stopper can't be ruled out it could also be a finial or stem to some type of multi-colored decorative glassware.
Maybe one of the other collectors in the community will post a photo of a possible source on the Journal's FaceBook page.
Thanks for sharing your interesting find!
