The Peblsrock What's your Poison? Pocket Guide


This pocket-sized reference guide to vintage poison bottles illustrates why we find some of the colors of sea glass on the beach. The guide covers the history of poison bottles from the early days of clear glass bottles, the problems that clear poison bottles caused, and how bottle designs developed over the 19th and 20th centuries to try and eliminate some of the dangers in storing and using poisons in the home.

For fans of history relating to Seaham and the North East of England, there’s a chapter on Seaham's very own serial killer, and why she poisoned so many of her children and relatives over the years. It's a chilling reminder of just how easy it was to obtain poison, and how little chance there was of being caught!

This is a fun, practical gift for a beach lover, a hostess gift, stocking stuffer, unique gift for a sea glass collector, or as a treat for yourself!
