Vintage Style Handmade Wooden Lobster Buoys

In a tradition stretching back to the nineteenth century each lobster fisherman in New England and Nova Scotia would have had their own colours to mark their traps or nets with up to 300 buoys of one colour scheme but sadly these colourful wooden buoys are no longer used for fishing due to the damage they can cause when fouling a boats propeller. Our vintage style buoys, inspired by the ones originally used by lobster fishermen to mark their traps, are handmade by us from reclaimed and FSC certified wood. They have a unique and vibrant appearance making them strikingly attractive home d├ęcor to which we also have a custom option for each of the three sizes we offer so they can matched to a particular colour scheme if you wish. Each buoy comes complete with extra thick quality cotton rope as a finishing touch.
