Kitras Art Glass still honors the old world tradition of glass blowing with studios in Canada. The 6" Olde English Witch Ball ornament is typical of their design, featuring tree trunk style threads inside the ball. These pay homage to the glass balls used by ancient mariners and are a symbol of good luck. Sunlight brings these balls to life, we just love showing them off in a gorgeous niche window! The blown glass loop for hanging gives you a way to thread the ball with strong fishing line or ribbon. We suggest using a strong, sturdy hanger from ceiling or wall bracket. Each ball comes gift tagged and boxed. This one features purple glass.
