 My son found this Cast Iron piece on a beach in Maine.

It is very ornate.

Wondering if its from a ship??

We have been wondering what it is for a couple of years now!

Beach Find of Iron

It is hard to say exactly what it is from. A lot would depend on the thickness of the metal.

Although it may have come from a ship, it is much more likely to have come from a different source, such as discarded trash.

If it is not real thick, for example, it could have come from a steamer trunk.

If it is thick, it may have come from an old wood stove.

There's a chance someone will recognize the old pattern from their childhood or their grandparents house.
