In an aureole the Holy Madonna stands with her son. This relief-like image you see on both sides of the ball. A stripe of fine silver mica both sides. An iron cap closes the upper end. The place of origin of the glass ornaments is the area around Lauscha in Thuringia. In the beginning it was just a substitute for real fruit which a poor glass-blower could not afford. With time, the diversity of glass ornaments for Christmas trees grew. Their popularity grew and they became a real bestseller. This hand made item comes to you safely packed and together with an MAROLIN® certificate of authenticity.
