This beautiful green sphere is an early 20th century glass float used by Japanese fishermen to keep their fishing nets or droplines afloat in the ocean. The hollow float would have been encased by a rope netting and used just like a modern buoy. Because these floats were commonly produced from recycled sake bottles, most antique glass floats found today are a lovely shade of green. A fantastic collector's item, we love these vintage floats as a sculptural accent to a garden landscape or beachy interior.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
