Japanese Glass Fisherman Floats

This grouping of Antique Glass Japanese Fisherman Floats includes Display pedestals with copper application (10 total). The 2 large Floats are imprinted with name (see more images). To give the objects more "visual presence" the concept of varied heights was incorporated. Added touch of copper results in an extra pop of color. I call them "floats with an attitude". Great for a tablescape and conversation piece!
Dimensions vary - from as small as 3" Diameter by 4.25" High on pedestal to 10" Diameter by 14" High.
Materials: Hand Crafted Glass.
Condition: Very Good Condition. Original bindings/rope were not on floats when I found them. All are in very good condition considering they were in ocean water for their original purpose.
Number of items: 10
