I'd put lamp in the title and fish, not fishing. I wasn't able to find it searching eBay.

At $90 I think folks are thinking it's a glass float. The description says it's plastic. Someone may be really disappointed if they didn't read the description....

Yeah Tim I thought about that but had no room for both.
When I put in fish float light it came up for me. Not for you?

And Tikihula this light is plastic but you make it sound like a toy ball from Toys''R''Us.
this one is from a store display and more like Acrylic or Polycarbonate I said plastic.
I have sold lights with glass globes, plastic er ah Acrylic or Polycarbonate and even paper globes.
The one light I have not sold is one that "Someone may be really disappointed" with.
In fact I did "really disappoint" people at Hukilau when I sold all my lights in one day
and they could not buy one.
And yes I had Paper, Plastic And Glass globes that I sold there.

As I go to tiki bars home and commercial I encountered many different types of lights.
I study, photograph and buy them.
The great bars of old all had plastic globes and glass.
And the most of the glass ones WERE NOT FISH FLOATS!
Fish floats are a pale green coke bottle color, I have had people ask for many colors
but never a lt green or lt blue, If you put a light in them it does not look so hot.
The plastic globe weighs less is more durable and has better colors than most glass ones do.
One of my favorite lights from the Kahiki is plastic.

Look at the fish trap lamp at bottom of page.

Quote Sven
"Now here's one of my favorite vintage Tiki lounge lamps, a classic 3 resin float bamboo fish trap light!"

Plus Sven has many Resin, plastic er ah Acrylic or Polycarbonate lights in his house.

What I find odd is that I have seen a light here that is priced kinda high they were 12 inch floats
and not tied as well that sold for around $250.00 to your door, that's $20.00 bucks an inch.
($20.00 bucks an inch would put this light at around $180.00)
They did come in lt blue I think, tied with sisal twine.
You felt no need to do a public service announcement on those lights.
I've seen mugs go for high dollar, and those can be made by a mold.
Hey if you make some money off your art, good for you I say.
I'm up to about Five cents an hour and riding high.
You DO know I have to buy this stuff to make these right?

This is a one of a kind hand made light, I think they call that couture in the fashion world.
Or "Hand crafted Cocktail" at Three Dots, At this price I can get one bowl of booze with tip.

I will post some photos of plastic globes to show my point.

And yes you are right someone will be "really disappointed" with this light.
The People who did not win it.

The Kahiki.
Now in my house and one of my favs.





A Little place called Oceanic Arts, It's in California.






Another California place call Tiki Ti.



Three of my other plastic lights. (All Sold) can you spot the glass one?
With no "Someone may be really disappointed" I might add.

Skip, I would LOVE to be disappointed in having one of your lights delivered to my home. Your work is truly top notch. Best of luck w/ the auction...not that you need it. OGR

Hey Skipper, Since you make mas dinero on your one of a kind custom lights
I was hoping you could lend me a few clams, I need a new cozy for my Fabergι egg!

Then we can take out the Bentley for a cruise to Hi-Time's and pick up another case of Napoleon Brandy
Chin Chin, my good man!

Thanks guys.
And ATP there once was a time, and what a time it was!

I do make some loser lamps, I just don't sell or show them.
In fact the best lights I make are often saved for sale on eBay.
When I sell any of my works I do care deeply about the buyer being happy with our deal.
The lights I sell will be one of the best in your bar.

Sven put it best and I'm way proud of having a light in his house.

"Skip, I've been a fan of your lamps fo evva. Your love of detail, your aging techniques, the visible time spent on each piece make them the only lamps I would hang among my vintage ones. One day I am gonna get me one of those cork ones"

If Sven don't know who does?

I stand by my opinion. It looks like glass and if I had won the bid on it and failed to read the description I would have been disappointed that it was not. You can read into it whatever you like.
