This is an authentic Japanese glass fishing float. It is about 4" in diameter, or similar to the size of a grapefruit. It is a light teal blue color. This float was made from recycled glass & is at least 40 years old! It has minimal wear from being exposed to the elements such as the sand, wind & salty ocean water. The nubbin has actually become detached from the float. These type of floats are commonly called rattlers. Once in a while, I find a float that has been frosted internally because of some glass inside rolling around for a long period of time.

Glass fishing floats are ideal for home/beach/nautical decor, outdoor decor & ponds, and they make unique recycled gifts!

All of the floats I sell were once used for fishing, or were working floats. I don't sell reproductions, colored contemporary floats, or those meant for 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.
