Fossick Finds

From my fossicking trips to the breached seawall I now have four traditional Shippam's Paste jars- all different sizes and styles, a few bits of tile and some shiny broken bits. Its quite addictive turning over the seaweed and mud with the toe of a welly to see what turns up ( I must stress I don't excavate for these)and @wakelys and I are always safe and follow lockdown rules!!

To see that medicine bottle in all its glory pop over to thedarkroom and let me know if I should keep it or not!!
What a nice reflection! I especially like the piece of painted ceramic on the right hand, which completes the pattern. Very nice!

How wonderful to find so many interesting glasses, beautifully photographed.

Cool finds - and will inspire some interesting shoots too!

Nice finds, the paste jars are such lovely shapes and they look so tactile. I think I'd only keep the intact pieces - but that's just me thinking about stuff that I should get rid of 😂

The Shippams jars amaze me. And 4 of them?

Amazing finds, as they look almost intact.

What an interesting collection. It's amazing that the glass jars are still complete after their years in the sea.

Interesting finds. Do these have a bit of age on them? Do have an sense of whether they've been pitched off a ship or thrown in the water from the land?

Well done!!.

Shippams paste. I remember my mother making me sandwiches with it. Sardine and tomato flavour, I believe.
January 21st, 2021  
Oh I wish I had kept my Shippams paste lars all those years ago. @gillian1912 My favourite was sardine and tomato too.
January 21st, 2021  
I'm both impressed by your collection and deeply depressed by the fact there's just so much stuff floating about our oceans...
