This is a Japanese glass fishing float that was once used for salmon gillnet fishing! It is about 3.6" in diameter, or similar to the size of a softball. This float was made from recycled glass & is at least 40 years old, but I'm certain it's closer to 60 because of the net! It has the original net on it, which is made from a natural fiber such as sisal. The glass is a nice shade of green!

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 actually "working" floats. I do not sell reproductions or colored souvenir floats!

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.
