Hi I found this lade one cold Winter's day in North west Arm , we were driving off an old concrete pier . we dive here in the winter time and the late fall because the Northwest arm is so full of pleasure boats and sailboats it's not safe to be underwater I've been near missed a couple of times. We dive it looking for bottles some stuff like this in the winter in the early spring when the boats are all out of the water. I foundI This particular ladle in two pieces I saw the handle it was broken so I left it there . I swam on a little way and found the bowl looking at it it came to me , the handle for it was back there , but finding it again was a little tougher could we root for bottles on the bottom we stick her hands in the silt as the older stuff would be buried, , so the water was really murky where I've been stirring up the bottom I couldn't find it so I put my hand down wearing thick neoprene gloves and after a few minutes o zero viz searching I found it . I believe it's Part I'm set of dishes they look Victorian. A bit of crazy glue and it was intact again the number 28 is on the bottom a little bowl must be a piece number

Nice item, nice story! What have you found for bottles? Did you keep any? I always thought it would be fun to scuba dive for bottles at docks, rivers, lakes etc. Would like to see more finds. Thanks for posting, stay safe. :)
