Rexhame Beach Glass Story
Saturday, July 18, 2009 3:38 PM
I found what I think to be a rare reddish/bright orange piece of seaglass, smaller than a pea in Massachusetts on Rexhame Beach in Marshfield.
I also found a piece that is light sea green, flat with the words in CAPS, "FLAVOR" and "FACTS"... Believe it or not my daughter found a piece that I think may have come from the same bottle with a matching type of letter, same color of glass, how rare is that.
Any idea where the glass may have come from with the words? I'd be happy to send pics. I am new at this, and love it!

I did more research, and found out the piece is from a Burnett's Flavoring Extract Bottle out of a Boston Company, most likely from the 1890's - 1910.... AMAZING!!!!! I am attaching a photo of a bottle that it would have come from...
I think the web page was changed on the URL you sent, since the bottle only appears in the Google image.
However, I got permission to use the above photo, which I think must be just like the bottle you're talking about. There are also more photos of the bottle from different angles. Let me know if it's not.
Also we're looking forward to those pics you said you would send! We can add them to your page here later.
