This beautiful old 16" Japanese longline glass float has been wrapped with old fishing net and secured with thick rope.
Floats of this size are hard to come by, and would have been used deep sea fishing.
This type of covering was a way for fisherman to re purpose materials, especially at sea where if the rope on a float broke solutions like this would allow them to continue fishing!
Such interesting texture, at some point it has come in contact with something red, which has left a faint pink smudge in some parts.
We have two of these awesome floats available, the listed price is for one only.
Measures approx: 45cm diameter
