condition: excellent
This float is in great condition. I do not see any cracks or notable damage to the glass. The original rope is in very nice condition too. Its circumference (including rope) is approximately 39.75" so its diameter (including rope) is approximately 12.66".

I am selling this piece for my aunt. She and my uncle lived in Panama in the early 1960's. They had a local friend who was a charter pilot. He would do runs to and from Piñas Bay Fishing Camp. He would occasionally find these floats washed up on the shore. That is where this float came from. He gave it to them as a gift. It has been on display at their home since.

Please feel free to make me an offer.
