A sea pottery keyring, handmade from genuine Scottish antique beach china. This piece features a lovely blue and brown stripy pattern. Each keychain is finished with a handmade silver plated ring to attach to your keys! The length of the whole keyring is 9.5cm. The pottery piece is 4cm long. These would make gorgeous gifts, an authentic, colourful little piece of Scotland's history (Item: 2103).

Everything is handmade in Scotland from naturally sea-worn materials. I love to gather these treasures while beach-combing on the beautiful beaches in Anstruther in the East Neuk of Fife as well as the surrounding beaches of St Andrews, Pittenweem, Crail & St Monans. 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.
