46 Japanese Glass Fishing Float Light Green Color with some unusual markings. You look at the photograh you see brown streaks in the ball. I’ve never seen any of the fishing ball I gathered have another color intergrated into the float! This is a vintage Japanese glass fishing float called “Hock A Dot E” from around Honshu, Japan. The floats were primarily used in the late 60’s to mid 70’s. The Float was used for Japanese Long Line Tuna Fishing and used on the end lines. This was a USED float! You will see some scrape marks and a couple of crack lines from the use. This is a true USED fishing ball. Please see photographs as you will see marks from being used. Marks: There is a Marker in the glass of the ball. I was stationed in Japan in the military and collected these balls. Im downsizing so my treasures must be passed on.
