A rare find.  These were often in the necks of old bottles.  If you ever find a complete bottle with these inside then you’ve found a real treasure! Often these bottles were broken by children to use as marbles.

Bottle tops from Cold bottles are also highly prized by beachcombers.  You need sheltered spots to find these in good condition.  Water-side towns are good spots such as Falmouth.

Happy beach combing!
