Float

If you look carefully you will see glass fishing floats in this picture.

That's a lovely 'still life' arrangement.
I can't take credit for arranging it, sadly, just taking the picture.
Those old glass floats are very photogenic. I used to see them in the antique shops when I was younger and used to wonder if an actual North Sea fisherman could have afforded them.
I guess they could a long time ago or no-one would have made them - or maybe not!

Here the traditional thing was actually the mollag; the skin of a dog stitched up and inflated. I guess they must have been good for a number of years as there couldn't have been that big a supply of dead dogs!
A beautiful arrangement! I love the floats, too, they're among my favourite maritime items (if you can call them this).
