I was lucky enough to enjoy two low tides on Monday, and the weather couldn't have been any nicer. The morning tide exposed some foreshore that doesn't always get uncovered, and I found some new treasures. I started out looking for only pipes, but soon the allure of odd pottery and glass and china overtook my good sense. There was only a few others out scavenging the shoreline, one metal detector and a nice German mudlarker I've come across quite often. By the turn of the tide I'd filled my bag with a good assortment of pipes, pipe bowls, glass and pottery. Later in the evening I was bored so I returned to see what the second low tide of the day might expose. I wasn't disappointed, as the shore gave up some offering I hadn't found before.
I found my first part of hair comb and also part of what I believe was part of a brush.
Also found three nice little china pieces, all three I believe would have been small bowls, maybe sugar or creamers. Two are banded ware I think, the other a tea ware piece.
This is a piece of pottery that was used as a colander, glazed on one side
Three nice pieces of different design. they are bigger than the usual find, about 3-5 inches in width and length
Lastly a picture of a variety of neat finds, two tops of jugs, two interesting handles and a piece of black ware, I believe might be really old, possible Roman.
My favorite find was the top of a glass bottle that had a glass top stopper. Labelled, Shaws Patent, I believe it is from the late 1880's. The bottle was clear, the glass stopper is light green.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures and commentary......see you next low tide!!!
