Sitting Cat - in Sea Glass

Sitting Cat - in Sea Glass

I'm not sure what beach I found this lovely piece on.

During the summer months I would collect sea glass and during the cold, snowy winter months I would clean the pieces and check them over carefully.

It was during the winter that I noticed the sitting cat on this, the bottom of a bottle.

I googled it and found out that it is the bottom of a beer bottled from a company in Ireland, E and J Burke bottled beer in these bottles and imported them to New York City. This dates back to late 1800 to early 1900.

I have imagined a sailor tossing the empty bottle into the sea off a schooner as the neared Colville Bay here in Souris, Prince Edward Island.

It is one of my very special pieces.
