Vintage Japanese 6" Rolling Pin GLASS FISHING FLOAT.. Bubbles, Salt Deposits, Mark (#27)

This float is what is known as a Japanese Rolling Pin Float because of its appearance that looks like a traditional rolling pin. It is approximately 6" long and 2" in diameter. It is made of hand blown glass. This is a Japanese fishing float that was actually used and has spent much of its life at sea. It has been picked out of many beachcombed and Japanese rolling pin fishing 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 of use in the ocean. The float is has thick glass with bubbles. This float is rare in that it has a makers mark on the seal end (seal is chipped but partial mark is visible on the portion of seal that is not chipped) (see photos). It is not common to find such marks on the rolling pin type floats. This rolling pin float still has some blue little dried deposits of sea salt on its outer surface (these appear as little white circles in the photos). Every vintage float is different and this one has many beautiful unique features (see photos).
