These lobster pot marker buoys were originally made to mark a lobster man’s pots. They were hand made and painted in the lobster man’s colours. His colours would be registered with the coast guard. This ensured all pots were harvested by the right boat. All have a rope to the top to tie to the rope and to the pot. These all came out of Nova Scotia, Canada.

They are now used as a form of decoration for gardens, seafood restaurants and more commonly a door stop.
If you drive around Cape Cod and coastal points North, a seafood restaurant frequently has them hanging over or covering the restaurant roof. All are slightly different in shape and size.
