    • A rare piece

    Since the turn of the century, these hollow glass floats, woven into the rope line of large fishing nets, were the worldwide choice of commercial fishermen from Norway to Japan to America. Often these round glass renegades escaped their worn-out nets. With the advent of plastic and the decline in commercial fishing, these lost, blue/green glass floats are now rare and highly sought after by collectors around the world. They were made by fusing glass together, so each ball has seams. Since age and origin is difficult to determine, no two will be exactly alike.

5 stars Interesting, pretty, unique, as expected

I gave this item 5 stars because it was as I expected, the colors are nice and the size is impressive. I ordered 3 floats and as they are hand blown into a mold, none were the same. These do appear used as expected, w/ scratches and glass making blemishes, bubbles/ripples which adds to their rustic charm. The colors are nice variations of aqua blue which is a result of impurities/metals in the glass. They will capture and play with light beautifully whether natural light or strategically placed candles/lamps. A unique item for my mid-western location - Ive never seen a float of this size in anyones decor - even in coastal regions.

4 stars I got TWO!

I have been wanting to get one for a while, then when I finally ordered, I went for TWO and BOY are they different!! One does seem to have more age to it than the other, as it shows the effect of the ocean and even has what was probably a chip that has lost the sharpness. It is quite light in color and the other is rather green and much less aged. I thought I might only keep one, but how could I decide when they were so different!! GOOD JOB WISTERIA!!

3 stars Impressive and yet....

The size of the glass ball is quite impressive, but the glass is almost opaque with scratches. Not quite the look I was going for.
