PIRATE Sea Glass Codd Marble, Amber Scottish Beach Marble

  • £47.00

Pirate glass marble! This beach found Codd marble looks black but when held against the light you'll see it's actually a very dark amber. These particular marbles were used by an Edinburgh brewery in their own Codd bottles and very rare to find in other places. The marble is perfectly frosted - they are usually a sea foam colour, with lovely tumble marks from the strong currents of the North Sea on the shores of Edinburgh. 

The pirate treasure is kept in an openable silver plated locket and comes with an 18” sterling silver chain. You can swap the marble for a similar sized treasure or rake the marble out anytime you want to hold it. 

Marble is approx 18mm diameter and comes with an 18” sterling silver chain 

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 Scotland near Edinburgh. This marble has not been altered in any way. It is important to me that the marble is 'untouched' just the way it was found on the beach.
