HERE IS A PAIR OF LOVELY VINTAGE HAND BLOWN GLASS FLOATS THAT WILL ENLIVEN YOUR WINDOW SILL, OR OTHER CREATIVE DISPLAY OF YOUR CHOICE. WITH THEIR LIGHT BLUE AQUA COLOR AND SOOTHING TWO-TONE SOFT GRAY & IVORY TWINE NETS, THEY ARE PRETTY ENOUGH - YET SUBTLE ENOUGH TO FIT IN ATTRACTIVELY WITH OTHER DISPLAY SETTINGS.

THESE MEASURE 2-3\/8" AND 2-1\/2" IN DIAMETER RESPECTIVELY AND BOTH MEASURE APPROXIMATELY 8" CIRCUMFERENCE. THE NETS ARE AUTHENTIC HIGH QUALITY POLYESTER TWINE WHICH THEY BEGAN USING IN THE 1950'S AND 60'S AS REPLACEMENTS FOR NATURAL FIBER NETS WHICH WERE MORE PRONE TO WEAR AND FRAYING. THESE NETS SHOW SOME WEAR, BUT ARE OVERALL IN WONDERFUL CONDITION. THE GLASS ON BOTH FLOATS SHOWS LIGHT-NORMAL WEAR, IN MY OPINION, NOTHING THAT INTERFERES WITH THE GORGEOUS GLOSS IN THE THICK, HIGH QUALITY VINTAGE GLASS.

BOTH FLOATS SHOW NICE SWIRLING AND BUBBLING. EACH SPORTS A LOVELY INNER 'PEARL' OR BUBBLE OF GLASS INSIDE THEIR SEAL BUTTONS. THE SEALS THEMSELVES ARE BOTH IN EXCELLENT CONDITION CONSIDERING THEIR DECADES OF WORK AS 'REAL' INDUSTRIAL WORKING FLOATS! AMAZING THEY HAVE ESCAPED SO BEAUTIFULLY. EACH SEAL HAS ONE MINOR BIT OF GRAZING OR ROUGH EDGE IN ONE VERY SMALL AREA. BOTH SEALS HAVE BEEN CRAFTED VERY NICELY. THEY'RE HUGE FOR SMALL FLOATS - WITH EDGES HAVING BEEN SMOOTHED THOUGHTFULLY BY AN EXCELLENT CRAFTSMAN.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING TO CARE FOR AND PRESERVE THESE VINTAGE FLOATS AS THEY ARE BEING REPLACED RAPIDLY WITH PLASTIC AND SYNTHETIC FLOATS.

I VALUE YOUR TIME AND ENERGY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN lightinawormhole. WHETHER YOU PURCHASE OR NOT, BEST WISHES!
