Sea glass frog necklace with codd marble

Kiss a frog ... Really cute codd sea glass marble (15mm diameter) kept inside a silver plated frog on silver plated chain in length of your choice. The little frog holds the marble secure in his hands.. do frogs have hands This little guy looks like the marble is a bit big for him.. but he won't give it back! SIZE Marble 18mm diameter on silver plated chain in length of your choice. The marble has not been channel drilled. it is set in the silver wrapping without having been altered. Marble is between 16-18mm diameter. Codd marbles are approx 80-100 years old. Every marble is unique and if the Sea has been rough. there are lovely tumble marks on it. Occasionally a marble might have a small piece missing. but they are all frosted. This is a feature and makes your marble that bit more special. CODD MARBLES: The Codd-neck bottle was designed and manufactured to enclose a marble and a rubber washer/gasket in the neck. The bottles are filled upside down. and pressure of the gas in the bottle forced the marble against the washer. sealing in the carbonation. The bottle was pinched into a special shape. as can be seen in the photo to the right. to provide a chamber into which the marble was pushed to open the bottle. This prevented the marble from blocking the neck as the drink was poured. Codd bottles were used until the 1920s in Scotland/UK. Sea glass marble found on the rough coasts of Scotland. This marble has not been altered in any way. there is no glue or channel drilling involved in this piece of jewellery.
