Timeless takes time. And so it is with the coveted coastal treasures that wash ashore during low tides all over the world, known as sea glass. Shaped over many sunrises and sunsets, these bits of colored glass drift for as many as two hundred years, weathering storms in the saltwater, tossing and turning, Mother Nature’s own polishing that gives them their characteristically smooth, frosted texture.

Prominent in the Northeastern United States, beaches along the shores of New Jersey and New York can be found teeming with these heirlooms and artifacts of whiskey and spirits, trinkets, medicine bottles, dinnerware, jam jars, old taillights, and if fortune finds you, a piece of an antique ink bottle.

First used decoratively at the turn of the last century, beachcombers seek out these little gems giving credence to the statement that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. A bounty of colors ranging from amber to green, black to pale pink, and clear frost to the rarest turquoise blue, make sea glass a highly collectible commodity.

To celebrate the nearby shores of Esterbrook’s birthplace, the Sea Glass is the newest Estie in their Core Range. As sea glass is for all seasons, this offering will join other classic colors as a permanent part of the Estie lineup.

Specifications:
  • The material is blended and turned acrylic with a Sea Glass mix of colors and a highly-polished finish.
