What better way to symbolise a truly special friendship than with these unique and stunning Friendship Globes? Tradition states that at the end of every day the glass blower would gather up all his leftover glass and blow them into these distinctive globes that would be given as tokens of love or friendship. Today the traditional glass blowing methods are still going strong and so is this most enchanting and ancient tradition. Friendship Globes date back to the 1800s and are known by many names including fairy balls, kugels, ornamental balls, witches balls and spiritual balls and the tradition of using them as friendship tokens is spread throughout Europe and America. Hang them indoors in front of a window to allow natural daylight to filter through the coloured glass and brighten up your home, or outside in the garden to add a splash of rainbow colour to your tranquil space. Each Friendship Globe is unique and different because of the way the skilled craftsmen blow them by mouth and then shape them by hand using recycled glass. They are the perfect gift for any occasion and a wonderful way of showing someone just how much they mean to you.
