This is an authentic, Japanese glass fishing float. It is a Hokkaido roller & is about 5.2" long. It is a light blue color. I know this float is at least 40 years old & probably closer to 60! It was made from recycled glass in an iron mold.

This roller was used in the Japanese octopus fishery.

Glass fishing floats are ideal for home/beach/nautical decor, outdoor decor & ponds, as well as 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.
