This beautiful green sphere is an early 20th century glass float used by Japanese fishermen to keep their fishing nets or droplines afloat in the ocean. The hollow float would have been encased by a rope netting and used just like a modern buoy. Because these floats were commonly produced from recycled sake bottles, most antique glass floats found today are a lovely shade of green. A fantastic collector's item, we love these vintage floats as a sculptural accent to a garden landscape or beachy interior.
