This is an authentic, Japanese glass fishing float. It is a lovely light teal blue color. This float also bears the Asahi symbols on the seal button. This indicates it was handblown by the Asahi Glass Company of Northern Japan. The float was made from recycled glass & is at least 40 years old!! It is about 2.4" in diameter, or a little larger than a golfball. It also has the original net on it.

This type of float was commonly used for octopus fishing.

Glass fishing floats are ideal for home/beach/nautical/cottage decor, landscaping, flower beds, koi ponds, etc. They also 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.
