The Chesapeake Blue
This beautiful blue stained glass crab might make you reach for the Old Bay seasoning. Switchables covers with "SW" catalog numbers use the traditional process with a metal frame, as opposed to the fused-glass "SF" models.
This is not a self-contained night light. Switchables stained glass night light covers are designed to be used with the Switchables Nightlight Fixture (sold separately). Switchables are "switchable" because you can easily swap any one of our covers onto the same simple fixture. You can also use your Switchables cover as a suncatcher, a Christmas ornament, or with any other kind of light source. To display your Switchables cover in a window, add the optional suction cup. Switchables make gift-giving easy: Start your recipient out with a fixture and one or two covers, then buy him or her new covers on future gift-giving occasions.
Are you curious...?
"Blue crab" can refer to the Chesapeake or Atlantic blue crab; the blue swimmer crab; the blue king crab; or the Japanese blue crab. All of those except the king crab look more or less alike to an untrained eye, but the Chesapeake blue is the commercial favorite. Although crab fisheries center on the Chesapeake Bay, Louisiana is also a major source of this culinary favorite (along with Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina). Native Americans introduced blue crabs to European settlers' diets as early as the 1600s, although they continued to prefer fish. Perishable crabmeat remained a regional thing until refrigeration came along in the late 1800s and enabled a crab fishing industry to distribute nationally. Blue crabs were so abundant in those days that they were considered a net-clogging nuisance in the lower Chesapeake Bay, but by the 1910s dwindling populations made size restrictions necessary. The supply rose and fell in a long-term equilibrium until they went into a serious, long-term decline beginning in the 1990s.
