Please help me identify this sea glass piece.

by Em

I am lucky to have a friend who collects and shares with me, sea glass she finds on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

In the last batch she gave me, there is, what looks to be, the bottom of a small square bottle.

The bottom is about 1 inch square and is concave. 

There is what appears to be a capital H with a line through it on the bottom. 

The inside is very smooth, while the outside is more tumbled and frosted. 

Any information anyone can give me would be appreciated.

I will attempt to attach pictures showing the insignia and the shape.

Love this site and anxiously await comments.

Thanks Lin,
I have researched a little on line but didn't come across the site you mentioned. I will check it out ASAP. I actually did try to attach pictures of the piece I described and I thought they went through. I'll try again.

H with line through it

Hey Em,

When I read your question you reminded of something I've been meaning to do for a while now and have forgotten (not an unusual occurrence these days, ;-))

There is a site that has a wonderful amount of info on glass manufacturers' symbols, et cetera. A very informative place to play detective in.

Take a look at it; you just might find what you're looking for. And it's so true that a picture is worth a 1,000 words, so, if you're able, we'd love to see a pic of the bottle bottom.

This is the link:

Happy hunting, whether online or at the beach.
