UV Yellow Heart Shape

UV Yellow Heart Shape

My daughter was given about 20 pcs of different colored chunks of sea glass from an elderly gentleman in Florida.

He said that he found as a kid. I myself had been collecting sea glass for years and never saw this size before until this past Fall where I found chunks of blue and clear of the same size and exact type of frosting and smooth shiny areas on the same piece.

I found about 30 pieces in the same area in New Jersey. I am including pics of both lots along with yellow UV piece.

What glassware did these pieces come from? What value can be determined for the yellow piece?

Thank You for taking the time to read this and God Bless!

chunky stuff

These pieces look very much like glass chunks found along the Delaware Bay in S.Jersey.Most like;y from glass factories that were very active in the 1800's to early 1900's.Look up glassmaking in NJ.The factories would dump right there along the bay.

Good Questions?!

Hi Steven,

It's impossible to begin to identify the origin of the pieces shown unless there is some kind of marking or other clearly identifiable feature.

The yellow piece is quite unique and a great find. It is a decent size and the heart shape adds to it's attraction. However, it is not very tumbled or rounded, which detracts somewhat from the price.

I would try to get $50.00 for it if I had it for sale. However, we have thousands of people on our mailing list and it is about an even chance that none of them would buy it.

If you don't sell it keep it for your collection (we recommend keeping it).

Nice collection - keep hunting and add to it.

Happy hunting,
