A treasure trove of some of my rarest and most favourite finds. These special pieces have been arranged in simple, clean lines. They remind me of curiosity cabinets you would find in a museum!

Each mosaic includes a blend of both man-made and natural items that have been washed ashore on the Fife beaches in Scotland including Victorian antique sea pottery, sea glass, driftwood and other found oddments! These precious fragments, collated in a spectrum of beautiful pale greens and aqua turquoises, have been artfully arranged and preserved behind glass, a little beach-combing adventure for your wall! As with every beach find, each is unique and some of these will be very hard to part with. This collage includes:

  • a large piece of antique pottery featuring a green floral transfer-ware design
  • two pieces of pale green milk glass also known as opal glass (a type of glass that was opaque rather than transparent and popular in the early 1900's)
  • a piece of pottery with a back-stamp makers mark and the partial words 'Victoria China, Czechoslovakia'. I've included a photo of the original mark which dates this piece to between 1918-1939.
  • a tiny pottery kiln stilt - these were used in ceramic factories to hold the pottery in the kiln during the firing process
  • a large piece of pale green Vitrolite sea glass. This is identified by its ridged texture and was very strong glass used to make tiles in the 1930's.
  • a piece of white quartz
  • two further pieces of green antique pottery with dark green patterns
  • a "sea foam" green sea glass heart and another tiny piece in turquoise
  • a lovely piece of driftwood 
  • a curved plain piece of pottery - possibly a cup handle!
  • a piece of unidentified round material in a beautiful verdigris green

As you can tell, I feel quite passionate about these pieces. The excitement of finding a special piece, gifted by the sea, never quite leaves me so I hope you enjoy this assortment of beach-combing goodness!

All the pottery included in the mosaics are sea-worn ceramic fragments that wash up on the beautiful beaches in the East Neuk of Fife in Scotland. Much of the pottery dates back to the Victorian era, when ceramic factories threw their 'seconds' into the sea and locals used to cast their broken pottery into the waves for good luck! The pottery has been gently worn smooth by the rough Scottish seas but the patterns and colours remain vibrant, a testament to the manufacturing processes of the time. 

I have a range of these rare collections of beach finds in different colours. Each mosaic is priced individually based on the rarity and collectibility of the pieces included.

This original seaside art comes in a wooden box frame and measures 18cm square. Please choose your frame colour, either white wood or rustic washed wood (Item: 3026)
