THIS AUTHENTIC VINTAGE GLASS FISHING FLOAT IS THE REAL DEAL....

AFTER SURVIVING MANY YEARS IN THE COMMERCIAL FISHING INDUSTRY THIS FLOAT WAS RESCUED FROM THE SHIPWRECK YARDS IN BANGLADESH JUST FOR YOU !

FLOATS WERE USED IN THE COMMERCIAL FISHING INDUSTRY TO KEEP THE NETS AFLOAT AND IN THE 1970'S WERE REPLACED BY STRYO-FOAM VERSIONS. THE FLOAT WAS MADE BY BLOWING THE GLASS INTO A MOLD TO KEEP THE UNIFORM SHAPE AND SIZE AND FINISHED WITH A BUTTON SEAL THAT MAY OR MAY NOT DISPLAY THE MAKERS MARK. YOU WILL NOTICE MANY BUBBLES AND OTHER IMPERFECTIONS IN THE GLASS ADDING TO THE BEAUTY AND NOSTALGIA OF THIS MARITIME TREASURE. TECHNICALLY, THIS FLOAT IS NOT CONSIDERED "RARE", HOWEVER, THEY ARE NO LONGER USED IN THE FISHING INDUSTRY AND ARE GETTING HARD TO FIND. LFA2

WE DO NOT CLAIM THAT THE ROPE WEBBING IS ORIGINAL BECAUSE OVER TIME THE WEBBING MAY HAVE BEEN REPAIRED AND/OR REPLACED BY THE FISHERMEN.
