Sorry, this item sold. Have GlassFloatJunkie make something just for you, or try these other items:
The float on the left is unmarked. The other 2 bear a version of the katakana mark for "sa". They were handblown at the Sasa Glass Company of Aomori City, Japan.
Typically this size of float was used for octopus fishing. They were often interchanged with the Hokkaido rollers. These floats were made from recycled glass & are at least 60 years old!
Glass fishing floats are ideal for home/beach/nautical/cottage decor, yards, flowerbeds & ponds, and they make unique recycled gifts!
All of the floats I sell were once working, or actually used for fishing. I don't sell colored reproductions or contemporary floats meant for souvenirs or the gift trade.
NEW SHIPPING POLICY: Due to the increase in international shipping charges, I will gladly send any boxes under 4 pounds via first-class mail. It is much less expensive, but will take quite a bit longer to receive. If you would like your floats sent this way, please message me or make a note when you make your purchase. I will refund the difference in shipping charges.
For example, I just sent a single 3" float to the UK. Priority was $28. First-class mail was just under $10. I sent a 3" float to Australia for $13.00.
