Each one of these stunning Handblown Glass Ball Mobiles will be completely unique, displaying its own individual combination of color and form. Modeled after traditional glass fishing floats, three of these handcrafted orbs are suspended by chains attached to a main ring, approximately 10" in diameter. The chains continue upward and meet at a hanging hook.
These unusual glass orbs are commonly referred to was "witch balls" or "witch's balls." This is believed to be related to the 17th century practice of throwing suspected witches into water. If they floated—or were "rejected by the water"—they were confirmed as witches. Glass fishing net floats were also exceptional floaters and, as a result, were believed to take on the power to protect against witches and evil spirits. It was also believed that the twisting strands of glass within each ball would capture evil spirits and prevent their escape.
While we offer no guarantees on the effectiveness of this glass ball mobile in protecting you against evil spirits, we are quite confident that its unique appearance will be a striking addition to your décor, and one that is sure to spark many an interesting conversation.
