Glass shards from shipwreck

<< < (2/2)


--- Quote from: "Posted for Roger Smith" ---Sid's response pointed me in the right direction, and Dave at the site immediately helped me to nail the sherd down to a series of cup plates with the ship Cadmus depicted, made at Sandwich Glass ca. 1840.

Thanks Sid, great reply and educational too.   :D


--- Quote from: "Posted for Roger Smith who " ---We think the vessel was a schooner carrying bricks to build Fort Taylor (Key West) or Fort Jefferson (Dry Tortugas), which are the largest masonry structures in the Western Hemisphere.  There are other brick wrecks in South Florida, as well.  These forts were part of the early U.S. coastal defense strategy, were never involved in any real defensive actions, and are now parks and tourist attractions.
