Description

#2198      731      TILLOTSON      Dark cobalt blue.

A "Character" piece with barnacles on the skirt interior!

Reportedly from the Steamer Sherman shipwreck which sank in 1874 off the coast of North Carolina.  The steamship was bound for New Orleans from New York when it sprang a leak, sinking two days later.

Some examples have weak embossing.  Not the case with this jewel... the embossing nicely defined.

The majority of those known have internal fractures.  Such is the case with this one, having two opposing fractures that travel up the skirt to a horizontal fracture that encircles the top portion of the dome. These are not visible on the outside surface.  Only when held to bright light can they be fully detected.  Areas on the glass surface are somewhat dull, apparently from exposure to salt water.
