If you follow my blog, you know
I am forever searching our beautiful beaches for sea glass.
With too many entries to list,
On April 29, 2012 as I was looking for sea glass,
a kind fisherman handed me some glass and a piece of pottery,
I later found the other one.
That entry is worth reading and can be viewed here.
There is some writing on the pottery,
the hubs "googled" it and here's what he found:
In researching Maritime Disasters in the Atlantic Ocean
that originated from Great Britain, this plate may have come from
the wreck of the HMS Captain.
The ship perished on September 7, 1870.
The sad news is, 480 sailors perished that day, only 18 survived.
The pottery is beautiful, it's edges are soft and worn.
For me, it's a treasured piece of history!
