Quick guide on purchasing vintage fishing floats _____________________________

Please note that my floats come with either the original netting or no netting. Often netting will vary greatly as fishermen were very resourceful using anything they had on hand to repair the nets. I even have a few with strips of tires woven in. Anytime you see vintage "perfect" netting you should be wary as it is often added later to add sales appeal.
* Please note - it is possible to find floats with "perfect" netting although it is not very common.

Authentic Floats are made from a very heavy glass. This was to ensure survival at see. Reproduction floats are often made using a much thinner, lighter & brightly colored glass. They almost seem to be " perfect" in design . Authentic floats in vibrant bright colors do exist but are difficult to find. The vast majority of authentic floats will at least have a bit of "character."

Authentic floats are unique . They can contain inclusions, lumps, bumps, bubbles, can be lopsided, have makers marks, barnacles, ect. This all adds desired character.

Spoon Fish Care Instructions

All our wind chimes may be kept both indoors and out. Silver plate will naturally tarnish to a golden brown hue over time. While we find many prefer the tarnished version it is also possible to maintain a new polished look with ease. If you desire your chimes to remain polished and need no additional attention we have had great success with a light beeswax rubbing. ( Simply take warm beeswax & rub onto each fish then wipe until all visible signs are gone )
Our preferred method is super easy! You don't even need to take your chime down for cleaning. Simply scrub the fish with a dab of hand sanitizer & wipe clean with a towel once a year. Amount needed seems vary by location - busier cities do best with twice per year due to smog.
