This small but courageous old glass fishing float will remind you that even 75 years of hard work, the challenge of rough seas, and unpredictable storms still can't keep a good float down! 'Misty Morning' is so named to reflect the normal wear in its surface, and the 'mist' which still enshrouds the surprise of a new day during the wee hours.

This old sweetheart measures 2-3/8" diameter (the glass) or 8" in circumference including the width of the net. The glass shows some 'champagne' type bubbles with its swirls bending the pretty light teal blue color, as this brave little float reflects the light.

Misty Morning wears an authentic, original cotton twine net. The net shows natural wear, yet it is tight, intact and in very good condition. It has a little loop on top which may be used to hang the float for display, if you wish.

The seal 'button' is large and shows good placement. It's surround edge is in amazingly good shape considering the floats many decades of service and journey at sea. Most of the surround edge remains smooth, with minor, shallow grazing here and there. Nothing to squawk about:)
Have a good look at the pretty 'artifact' - the old seal button - in photo #3. Note that photos #2 and #5 show the seal through the top end, all the way to the other end. The float has enough character that it produces a neat effect. Please care well for Misty Morning. Thank you:)

Thank you for helping to care for vintage fishing floats which are rapidly being replaced with plastic or synthetic floats.

Your time and energy are valued. Thank you for your interest in lightinawormhole.
