VINTAGE LARGE 40 INCH JAPANESE GLASS FISHING FLOAT.. WITH NET & SEAL MARK

This large vintage and rare float is approximately 40 inches in circumference Including its full net. It is made of hand blown glass. This is a Japanese fishing float that was actually used and has spent its life at sea. It washed ashore on the Oregon Coast many years ago and came from a collection from Seaside, Oregon. It has been picked out of many beachcombed floats to offer because of its unique qualities and characteristics. Its thick heavy glass contains impurities, inclusions and bubbles that are intrinsic to the Japanese manufacturing process. It is in good and sound condition with the normal wear one finds on fishing floats that have survived years in the ocean. In addition to its impressive size it has a nice maker's seal mark. (see photos). This float is also in its original net as found. The net is very well crafted and nicely knotted (see photos). This is an impressive float that shows well with its very nicely crafted full net that adds to the overall beauty and look of this float. This is a great find for any display or collection.
