This is an authentic, Japanese glass fishing float. It has the original net on it made from natural fibers. The float was made from recycled glass & is anywhere between 40-100 years old!! It is about 4" in diameter, or similar to the size of a grapefruit.

The seal button bears the kawaguchi marks. When translated, this means "river mouth". This float was blown at the Kawaguchi Glass Company of Northern Japan.

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 used, or working, floats. I don't sell reproductions or colored floats made for 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 approximately 8-10 business days to arrive. 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.
