HUGE 45" DARK BLUE Japanese Glass Ball Fishing Float with NET
I found this float myself on a recent float hunting trip to Japan in October 2009.
This float measures approx. 14" diameter and 45" circumference. It is a mouth blown seamless glass ball.
This float was used as a working Japanese fishing float. It is in good beachcombed condition with the normal wear of working fishing floats that have spent their life at sea. It is made with heavy thick glass with impurities, inclusions and bubbles from the Japanese manufacturing technique.
This float is a DARK BLUE. The photos show the color well.
The net is intact and strong.
The integrity of this float is very sound.
T are no cracks or chips on this float. The seal button edge is smooth and chip-free, which is unusual on these old floats that spent their life working at sea. see photos.
The float will be double boxed and sent insured USPS with delivery confirmation. It weighs 22 lbs. for shipping.
