(Ventura, Ca)


Found in Oxnard Ca at Oxnard Shores Beach.

Very thick, approx 1 1/2”long and 1”wide, light grey/clear in color, slight curve to the piece as well.

Letters “OKLA” are visible.

Thank you to anyone who can help - definitely piquing my interest as to what it might be from!

There is also an excellent historical glass bottle websight run by the Bureau of Land management that might be a good resource for you. I can't think of the exact name of the sight right off the top of my head but, it should be easy to google.

Note from Odyssey Sea Glass - here's the web site, a great resource that we have quoted many times:

"OAKL" sea glass
by: Gregsboat1

Hi,
This is my first post on this sight but, I am a big sea glass fan and a serious glass fishing float collector. In light of where this piece of glass was found, my best guess would be "OAKLAND", CA.

Owens-Illinois Glass Company used to make fishing floats at a plant in Oalkand so, it may have come from there...

I hope that helps.

Yes it's lovely, but...

I've been a seaglass hunter for about 2 years now, ever since moving closer to the beach and realizing that this lovely treasure awaits. And along with the pleasure of going on a treasure hunt and finding beautiful pieces of glass, I also enjoy learning about where the glass might have originated.

This is the first piece I've found that has markings on it, so I am very interested in trying to find out where it might have come from, which is why I posted.

Gorgeous!
