A run of four large mercury glass witches' balls.
Large hand blown glass witches' balls with a reflective mercury lining, finished with pressed metal galleries & hanging hooks. Historically hung in a window to ward off witches & also used reflect the interior space in a shop to keep an eye on suspicious customers.
Just beautiful decorative items.
Price is per ball with TWO remnaining.
Late 20th century.
Good condition overall with all four having numerous imperfections & areas of foxing, detailed last image. One ball has a secure crack near the gallery which is limited to the top part of the ball & appears to be a result of a manufacturing flaw & is again detailed in the last image.
UK courier service available at £15 per ball tracked & signed for 24 hour delivery. Reluctantly, to avoid damage, these will need to be sent separately if buying more than one.
