Do you need a decor piece for your outdoor vignette or a bookshelf, sideboard or coffee table?
We stumbled across a set of three vintage glass floats at a market near Brisbane. The fact that the floats are of varying sizes makes them more unique than your regular glass floats. The floats look wonderful displayed on a coffee table, bookshelf, or outside.
The earliest evidence of glass floats being used by fishermen comes from Norway in 1844. By the 1940s, glass had replaced wood or cork throughout much of Europe, Russia, North America, and Japan. Japan started using glass floats as early as 1910. Most of the remaining glass floats originate from Japan because it had a large deep-sea fishing industry.
Glass floats have since been replaced by aluminum, plastic, or Styrofoam.
Jute netting is a little thin in some areas, consistent with age.
Only sold as a set of three
1 x large float
1 x medium float
1 x small float
We find these pieces wonderful for styling purposes and know you will too.
