This lot of comprised of

1) Seven spheres, hung in two groups in order of increasing size, from 2.5" to 5" in diameter.

2) Three of the more rare, rolling pin or roller -shaped floats, not perfectly cylindrical but rather a "plump-when-you-cook-em" shape, convex along their length, as an over-inflated balloon, with notched ends where the netting would be attached.

3) Two separate, larger spheres, 5" & 7".

These are authentic vintage fishing buoys, not later manufactured reproductions, and were blown by hand, as indicated by the tiny bubbles and imperfections visible throughout the glass. The group of four is wired together, and the present netting is not original, but a later macrame addition to facilitate display, and is of course easily removed if you wish.

No cracks or breaks. All are green, with some variation in the tonal range. More photos upon request. Note: I also have a blue spherical buoy listed separately in my etsy shop.

Please note: *Age is an estimate*, as is shipping.
