Unique Large decorative Spheres
Okay, so part of this is my fault: I didn't realize the size of these! They are cool, but having learned in art classes that you must always have uneven numbers of items (1, 3, 5...), I now need one more since I ordered two thinking I was going to add these to a decorative bowl! Uh, no. These are really big! I don't have a nautical theme anywhere on my property, but I do have one sphere on my porch and one outside, and they work for the summer. I think these would look great in my family's yards in Florida. Too bad I live in PA! One thing to note that you can kind of see in the picture is that they are dirty. I mean filthy! I suppose that's part of their old, antique charm?? But I rinsed mine off right away! While being antiques, they still have a Made in China sticker, so I think the real, possibly old, original dirt could be removed before they arrive at the customer's doorstep!
Not as pictured
I purchased 3 of these for a Florida residence- was very disappointed.
It is stated that color may vary - mine were all Kelly Green & loaded with barnacles. In addition they were all filthy dirty.
They are quite a bit larger than they appear
Am taking them to Michigan to scatter in the landscape.
Happiness in a Bubble
It's just perfect. The one I got is green. It's large. I've always wanted a REAL fisherman's float. When I search for 'nautica' I want it to be real not some decor type wannabe. It still has the ropes (two kinds) knotted around it, a few bubbles and the base knot where it was removed from the glass blowing rod. All making it sceram 'authentic'. This item was offered some years ago. I could not afford it then. When I saw it offered again I had to have one. It sits on a small red metal patio table beside my natural finish aderondack chair. Perfect. I'd order another one if I could be guaranteed it would be blue. Very satisfied customer, as I have been with all my purchases over the years.
