Codd bottles were used up until the 1920s to keep carbonated drinks, the bottle was opened, the marble was released... a favourite toy for young boys, who loved playing what we would now consider old fashioned games with them Eventually some Codd marbles ended up in the Sea.

Sea glass marble found on the rough coasts of Cumbria/England. This marble has not been altered in any way, there is no glue or channel drilling involved in this piece of jewellery. It is important to me that the marble is 'untouched' just the way it was found on the beach.

CODD MARBLES: The Codd-neck bottle was designed and manufactured to enclose a marble and a rubber washer/gasket in the neck. The bottles are filled upside down, and pressure of the gas in the bottle forced the marble against the washer, sealing in the carbonation. The bottle was pinched into a special shape, as can be seen in the photo to the right, to provide a chamber into which the marble was pushed to open the bottle. This prevented the marble from blocking the neck as the drink was poured. Codd bottles were used until the 1920s in Scotland/UK.
