Three Colored Hand Blown Glass Fishing Floats Net Hanging Decorative Arrangement

  • $ 59.99

Description: A vintage decorative arrangement made of three hand blown glass fishing floats. The arrangement combines three glass floats of graduated size together using a rope net with round cork separators into a hanging element. The bottom float in the arrangement is the largest and is blue in color. The middle float is the midsized piece and is green in color with the top ball being brown or amber and is the smallest of the three. The entire piece can be hung from the sealing and would look nice in the right environment. The balls were probably acquired individually by the previous owner and arranged into this decorative element. We chose to keep it as acquired and not separate them to sell the balls individually. These floats were probably made in Japan with the netting being of later vintage when compared to the balls. All three balls have large pontils indicating that they are hand blown glass. The piece is in good condition and clean. Great looking piece which would make a great addition to your collection or can be used as a decorative element in your home at the shore. Please carefully review the photos presented as they are part and parcel of our description.
