This is a Japanese glass fishing float that I personally beachcombed along the coast of the Aleutians in Alaska. It is about 3" in diameter, or similar to the size of a baseball. It is almost completely frosted from being exposed to the elements such as sand, wind & the surf! This float was made from recycled glass & is at least 40 years old, but possibly much older! The Japanese began making floats from recycled glass around 1910 & stopped in the early 1970's! It also has some nice bubbles throughout the glass!
This type of float was commonly used for salmon gillnet fishing in the Bering Sea.

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

All of the floats I sell were once working or actually used for fishing. I don't sell reproductions, contemporary floats, or those that were 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.
