2.5" Japanese Glass Floats

Japanese glass fishing floats are popular collectors’ items. They were once used by fishermen in many parts of the world to keep their nets afloat. These Japanese hand made fishing floats were made and used by fishermen from Hokkaido Island of northern Japan and are real authentic floats. In Japan, glass fishing floats are being replaced by plastic and polystyrene making authentic glass fishing floats highly collectible. These floats are from my own personal collection which I have collected over the past 30 years. Each float is bubble wrapped and packed securely.

    One of the floats was broken. Can I get a credit or replacement?

    Love these beautiful treasures. I’m going to incorporate them into my driftwood art. 🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤩 Thanks so much!

    Perfect addition to my nautical Christmas tree! I added fishing braid to hang. Perfect size for ornaments! Love that they are real and vintage (not a fake, plastic ornament). Super fast shipping and packaged very well, no damage in shipping. ❤️⚓️

    All the floats arrived safely and they are just what I wanted. They were accurately described in size and color. Thank you!
