These are Japanese glass fishing floats. They range from 2.5" in diameter up to 4" in diameter. They were all made from recycled glass & are at least 40 years old! The nets are original to the 3 that have them. The 2 floats without nets I found in Alaska on remote beaches down on the Aleutians. They have some nice net marks from being tossed in the surf & sand when they had the nets on them.

The float 2nd from the left has the kawaguchi marks on the seal button. When translated, kawaguchi means "river mouth". This float was hand blown at the Kawaguchi Glass Company of Northern Japan.

Glass fishing floats are ideal for home/beach/nautical decor, outdoor decor & ponds, and they make unique recycled gifts!

All of the floats I sell were once actual working fishing floats. I don't sell reproductions, colored contemporary floats, or those meant 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 a bit longer to receive. 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.
