Glass Fishing Float Glass Ornament, 3 1/8", OWC# 44118
- Retired - While Quantities Last
Round Glass Fishing Float Christmas Ornament, 3 1/8", from the Merck Family's Old World Christmas Glass Ornaments collection. OWC #44118 (2018 New Release)
Beachcombers often collect Japanese fish net floats, when found, for decorations and replicas are now being made since they are no longer in use. This translucent ocean green ball ornament depicts these glass floats with raised gold criss cross designs to represent the netting. Though the real ones originated in Norway and were manufactured by many countries, Japan most notably manufactured and used them in their fishing industry. Per many online sources, most still washing up today or found on remote beaches have actually been floating around our oceans and beaches for over 10 years. All sides of this ornament are nicely detailed. It is made of blown glass, delicately hand-painted and has sparkly glittered accents.
The color will look lighter or darker depending on the background.
