A bit of a History about our Lobster Buoys.
Each is unique and has old fisherman twine to hang it. Each fisherman had their own colors to mark their traps or nets. They make great décor for the ocean-oriented person!
Bright buoys marking the locations of lobster traps have been an iconic piece of maritime culture dating to the late 1800s, when trapping became a common method of lobstering. To distinguish one lobsterman's traps from others, it became tradition—and then law—to paint buoys a unique pattern and color scheme. They became essential for beach house decor, used as doorstops, centerpieces, hanging displays, and more.
We've been featured many times. July / August, 2016.
