VINTAGE GLASS FISHING FLOAT IN RED AMBER:
This is a vintage glass fishing float in that weighs4 to 6 lbs. & is between 9 and 10 inches wide. It was hand blown into a two piece mold & has a glass plug inserted in the bottom of the float. Most of these were used in commercial long line fishing in coastal Aisa in from the late 1950"s on. They are even strung with commercial long line.Some floats have a dimple , some have a slightly rough texture and some have bubbles inside the glass. This is caused by varying temperatures in the drying process after comeing out of the mold. These all add to the character to the float and it's collectability.
