Here's an antique glass fishing float that held its own when the waves were high and the weather blustering. When life is casting too many challenges all at once, we often seek peace and calm, comfort and quiet in our surroundings to help us re-group. This vintage glass fishing float, called 'Mermaid's Pearl' emanates peace, calm and glows with inner beauty and endurance.

The dreamy little glass fishing float measures 2-5/8" diameter (the glass) or 7-7/8" circumference - 'golf ball' size collectors would say for easy reference to size. This versatile size makes a great window sill collector, nook, book shelf, vanity of even great desk buddy. The pretty light blue, almost clear, hand blown glass shows normal wear from decades of service at sea. It's lightly 'frosted' here and there from decades of sand-blasting, giving it a slight misty or pearly look.

I'm entranced by this beautiful gem of the old sea arts. So delicate, yet so strong! It's jewel like but courageous. I love the unique 'braid' attached across the top and the long, silky 'locks' that resemble mermaid's hair. This is actually part of the net and loop - well aged 100% cotton that has the feel of silk from natural weathering. This very collectible antique glass fishing float is a total sweetheart and don't think I've ever come across another 'Mermaid's Pearl'. The history and survival are real. The rest is all in the imagination - and you may see something completely different.

The seal 'button' is quite thick and well placed. Notice photo #4. Primarily oval round in shape, it shows thoughtful craftsmanship. It's a wonder it survived. The surround edge is fully vulnerable to damage from impact blows! The surround edge shows several areas of shallow chipping or light grazing, though fully intact and nothing serious. I like you to be aware of everything that I see. Mermaid's Pearl is a simple little working float that will bring endless inspiration.
