shipwrecked vintage glass

while i was on vacation, i visited the bermuda underwater exploration institute. as i was walking through the museum, i was shocked to find vintage glassware in one of the exhibits. in 1943 the last american cargo ship, the constellation, wrecked off the cost of bermuda on its way to venezuela. among the artifacts found at the shipwreck were 1,840 cartons of owens-illinois co. glass.
