"I found this glass screw-like object at the beach on the Texas City Dike on Galveston Bay, Texas.

"There is a small "k" in a hexagon at the top.

"Any ideas what it might be from?"

Answer:

As mentioned in comments for another find like this one, shown in our page Sea Glass Screw, this is a support for a neon light tube. Here's a photo from Brillite.com

Sea Glass Screw?

Sea glass screw?

~ sea glass identification question submitted by Tina

I found a piece of sea glass nearly identical to the one in the photo.

It appears to be a screw made out of glass.

In my piece there are 6 bubbles inside the screw part.

  • Does anyone know what this item actually is?
  • What it was used for?
  • What is it's estimated era (1900s, 2000s, etc) and origin it came from?

I've seen similar screws like this in sea glass books, but it's never discussed.

Thanks for your help.
