"WARNING Theft of this property and / or it's contents is punishable by law, a fine and / or imprisonment may result.."
Is what is displayed on the orange plaque, which intrigued me enough to contact the company name on this warning.
The company replied and stated:
"It is the tag that goes on all crab pot marking buoys of commercial fisherman in North Carolina. That's impressive it made it all the way over to you, as an oceanographic scientist I'm not suprised. You're welcome to keep it or recycle it anyway you like!"
If only plastic could talk - It would have a few yarns.
This piece also consists of shards of brown, clear and green sea glass and pottery all washed on Sennen Cove beach, but from exactly where.
