Our BEST Piece of Sea Glass Ever!

Sea Glass from Yardley Lavender Perfume Bottle

Yardley Advertisement from 1946 in LIFE Magazine

Our best piece of sea glass was found on a beach south of San Francisco.  The clear frosted glass has “YARDLEY” embossed on it.  It came from a Yardley lavender perfume bottle manufactured between the 1930s and 1950s.  That means the glass was tumbled in the Pacific Ocean for at least 60 years, before washing in at our feet!

  1. Something romantic about finding treasures washed up on the shore- I love the old advertisement you posted so that we can visualize the original bottle and time period. Great find!

    I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I love those old advertisements, and I had fun going through old LIFE magazines hoping to find an ad.
