My daughter found this in shallow water during low tide at Craigville Beach, MA. We were on the hunt for sea glass. But instead of looking on the beach for it, she was past the surf.

She saw something blue shimmering in the water and thought it was some sort of blue sea glass. Blue instead she picked up a pottery piece.

We tried doing some research, but found nothing like the leafy design on the piece.

Can anyone help authenticate it please?

-Thank you :D

Thank you

I hadn’t seen that in my research. I’ll definitely look it up. Thanks for your input. When reading about flow blue I found that it started in China and then England perfected the technique using their own methods of medium and blue transfer for patterns. Early ones were also painted on. The time period was early to late 1800’s. It’s hard to tell but whatever it is I will treasure it! Thanks!

Awesome find!

This is an awesome find! I think it might be saltware glaze pottery. Flow Blue is china (I think) and this appears to be pottery. It looks very old. A real treasure!
