Whew, that took some time putting these all in order. My loose collection of about 250 pipes, suitable for smoking whatever the user feels the urge to. I think just about every style, size, peg design, period is represented. Each one once tossed away as rubbish, now a treasure.
This is my favorite pottery on the foreshore. These will soon become the makings of a nice outdoor table. I plan on using an old metal table, using a dark grout between the shards, and then overlaying it with a thick poring of liquid acrylic to encase and protect the pottery pieces. This is 657 pieces, measuring 28 inches by 40 inches. I would like about 150 more pieces to enlarge it slightly more.

While not the grandeur discovery, these little morsels of color, shape and design are still fun to find. My quest for the Queens jewels continue ( ha ha ), but i'm still having a great time picking up the common mans' junk. Below is an assortment of pottery, glass, pipes, china and bits and pieces. Also I managed to take a few pictures along the way. All comments are welcome, as I am not 100% sure of what each item is.
It appears as an angel blowing a horn and some person of religious importance. Comments?
I think Westerwald, late 1700,s

That's about it for my recent trip to the shore. Good tides and longer days are coming......
