Here's a pair of small, charming twin antique glass fishing floats, unusual to come across a matching pair! Have loved these adorable glass fishing floats for decades. Time to let someone else enjoy and then pass on to posterity. In light aqua, each little glass fishing float shows normal surface wear from service at sea 'in the olden days', as we'd say when we were kids....and at some point in life one realizes there's no scarcity of 'olden days'!

The 'River Song Twins' each measure 2-1/4" diameter (the glass) or between 7-1/16" to 7-1/8" in circumference, about 'golf ball' size collectors would say for easy reference to size. Each little gem wears a shiny black polyester net. Unusual to find black poly nets! High quality polyester was used in the 1950's - 60's to replace worn natural fiber nets. Each net is tight, fully intact, in excellent vintage condition.

Notice how the River Song Twins glow even in low light. Photo #3 was taken at dusk, yet these magical vintage glass fishing floats still show off even in the near dark! (I never use flash.) Notice the seal buttons in this photo, each bearing the famous 'River Mouth' markings. The seals are each in terrific vintage condition, showing a few lightly grazed spots to their outer surround edges from normal wear during the course of their working lives.

The 'River Mouth' marks are delightful. I love these ancient kanji marks - a favorite! The 'box' represents the portal or opening of the river. The three vertical or parallel lines represent the 'flow' or movement of the river. You'll love the River Song Twins for life!
