Description

Vintage Japanese Glass Fishing Float 4" Nautical Buoy Aqua Ball Cover Pod Cap Ocean Japan Sea Highly Collectible

Marine Salvage
Authentic Japanese Fishing Float
Cover Cap "Pod" of PVC
Approx. Size: 4 inch Diameter
Blown Glass Inner Float
Removable
On Rope for Hanging
Kanji Markings on PVC Base
Excellent Collector's Item!

With the advent of plastics in the 1950s, Japan experimented with replacing the woven net coverings on their 3 & 4.5 inch floats with an extruded plastic cap, complete with Kanji identification. Exposure to sunlight caused chemical breakdown in the PVC pod-caps...they began to split & crack...the experiment was short-lived.

Item shown in photo is representative of the item you will receive.

Condition:
Authentic, weathered, expected condition for bouncing around in the ocean and up & over docks and boats for years. See photos.
Japanese blown glass float - see photos for visual details.


We ship every day the post office is open.
International shipment available. Customs regulations apply.
