Is there any way to date this piece?

By: Judy H, Visalia, Ca
I know from that this is probably window glass from what I read on your site. I found this at Monterey Bay, Ca along Cannery Row.

Answer:

This is a good piece to add to your collection.

Glass mesh began to be used to reinforce glass around the beginning of the 1900s. Early wire mesh was woven and was not generally wound like the "chickenwire" seen in this piece. However, an early date could go back to 1910 or around there.

Trying to tell really how old the piece is would require an analysis of the metal in the wire and research as to who was making that particular wire way back when. That's beyond our abilities here at Odyssey.

Perhaps we can get some comments from a more learned source.

BROWN BOTTLE OR SOMETHING ELSE?

I found this piece near Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey, Ca.

I thought it might be from a beer bottle but I'm not sure.

The wording is "ROW" and part of an "N".

To me it would spell "Brown" so this leads me to believe that it's not a beer bottle shard.

 Anyone have any idea what this is?


ANY ID ON THIS?

I found this piece near Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey, Ca.

I'm not sure where this came from but I'm intrigued by the small sunburst indentation.

Anyone have any idea where this came from?
