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 hundred years, weathering storms in the salt water, 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.
To celebrate the nearby shores of Esterbrook’s birthplace, we present the Sea Glass as the newest Estie in the Core Range. As sea glass is for all seasons, this offering will join our other classic colors as a permanent part of the Estie lineup.
The Exquisite Details
As a part of the Core Range, the comfortably balanced Estie Sea Glass is offered in fountain, ballpoint and rollerball in gold trim. The unique resin material is blended and turned with a Sea Glass mix of colors and then, given a highly-polished finish. A sleek clip provides a clean accent for the cap and slides easily to one’s shirt pocket.
