A stunningly pretty electric blue shade of sea glass, that looks amazing in strong sunlight, and with a teardrop of violet on one surface, making it utterly gorgeous. I waited for a bright day to photography this but it's never going to do it justice, this is one of those pieces that has to be experienced.

If you are a collector of Seaham Sea glass, this would make a perfect highlight to sit with your display, or to take to shows.

I make no excuse for the decision on price, as it is so collectable i would expect it to fetch more than this in an eBay auction. However i prefer to sell on Etsy, and i've priced it fairly when compared with other collectable sea glass on here. I[ve reduced it a little to celebrate Chinese New Year, so after that the price may go back up.


HISTORY OF SEAHAM SEAGLASS
The Candlish glass and bottle works at Seaham, England was the source of most of the glass discovered on the beaches below the factory site. Discarded, broken or below standard glass, at the end of each day, was hurled from the cliffs and then tumbled, eroded and polished by the sea over many years. In it's day, the six bottle and glass houses formed the largest glass production facility in Europe and exported across the world. Everything from decorative glass items to the humble beer bottle was made at these glasshouses, and the volume of production meant that the volume of waste was also high, leading to Seaham and the adjoining beaches becoming a rich source of sea glass, even today, almost a hundred years since the factory was forced to close due to shortages of raw materials.

More information on John Candlish can be found on his Wiki page, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Candlish , and the glassworks can be seen in this amazing archive, http://www.east-durham.co.uk/seaham/bottleworks/
