Item details

Here is a wonderful collection of partial bottle stoppers and codd marbles nestling inside an interesting piece of sea worn metal - all found on the wild, rugged coast of Scotland.

The partial stoppers and sea marbles are beautifully sea worn now and have scars to show for their adventures! They have so much character and are completely gorgeous. The larger piece is perhaps the stem from a goblet.

They sit inside a large, tactile piece of sea metal with a lovely weight. It is reminiscent of a lobster creel. They are all freestanding.

Some of these stoppers were used in soft drink bottles and sauce bottles. Often they are about 100 years old. They were used a lot here in the late 1800s with the invention of the Codd bottle, which also used a marble as a seal (what we now call Codd Balls).

Sea metal is an absolute favourite of mine. I love its patina, due to its exposure to the elements. The tones of the sea glass & sea metal complement each other perfectly, upon their chunky driftwood base.

They would be a fantastic addition to anyone's collection.

They come as found- I do not do anything to them other than give them a gentle rinse in mild soapy water.

Each piece is one of a kind and are really quite rare these days- a hard find!

Please look at the 5 pence piece for sizing guidance. It measures the same as the US dime in diameter - 18mm/0.7inch.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Many thanks.

Estimated Shipping
Shipping to
Zip or postal code

Orders ship within 2-3 business days of cleared payment received. I often dispatch on the same day.

Within the UK shipping is via 1st class Royal Mail and delivery estimate is 1-2 working days.

Outside the UK shipping is via Airmail, this typically takes:

- To Europe 3 to 5 working days
- To USA 7 - 10 working days, though often swifter.
- Elsewhere - please contact me for delivery estimate.

Airmail is the cheapest form of postage but is not trackable. I use this form of postage to keep costs lower for customers. The next cheapest form of postage (which is tracked) is Airsure, which they charge approximately £5 extra for on top of postage, regardless of the weight. Should you require a faster postal service (which is tracked) or insurance please contact me for a quote before purchasing or use the available 'upgrade' option.

Royal mail will not consider an item lost until 30 days after posting. If your item has not arrived in 30 days, I will refund you order. In the last 7 years (with approximately 3500 sales) only two items have been 'lost' in the post. A small handful have taken longer to arrive than the stated 7 - 10 working days, but have got there in the end.

I will happily combine postage to keep costs as low as possible.
