Product Description

I have a thing for the ocean. It soothes me, calms me, gives me peace…

To me, these vintage glass fishing floats {buoys} are the perfect union between some of my greatest design loves. Coastal, Vintage and Glass. I hope you love them as well.

vintage green glass fishing float

A bit of history behind these…. they were once used by fishermen off the coast of China to keep fishing nets afloat, usually covered in rope and all handblown. Some have washed ashore after tumbling around in the ocean for decades in Australia, Alaska, the northwest coast of the U.S. and other locals. Can you imagine walking along the beach and finding one of these?? I wish I had such luck!

These were imported from China, they are authentic and timeworn. they don’t have nets anymore, but on some you can see faint outlines of where they once were. These are pretty large, the average size being 10-12″ in diameter and light green in color. Depending on the light, they take on a deeper light green or a barely there tint of green. Just so beautiful!
