Pottery and China Fragments

Chainies is a term that refers to broken pieces of pottery and glass that are found on beaches.  These Chainies have been smoothed and rounded by the movement of the waves.  The term originated in Ireland during the depression of the 1930’s when the children would use these pieces of glass and pottery to play the game of ‘Chainies’.   Another interesting tradition was to decorate the tops of graves with Chainies in the shape of a cross.
