Marolin Glass Ornament - Cone Face with Mica, Patinated
NEW for 2023. Blown glass ornaments from Germany's Marolin® Manufaktur. Known for its handcrafting of both papier mâché and mouth blown glass ornaments in the Lauscha traditions. Marolin ornaments are mouth blown glass with hand painted details.
The original glass blowers found their inspiration in nature - hence the pine cone. That it was later given a face is probably owed to the stories and legends that were told in the evening in the parlors. This Pine Cone is painted in bold red, then patinated and covered with glass mica. Its face, which looks like a wood sprite is painted with wonderful detail.
Size: ⌀ 4 x 10 cm
Comes in its own clear plastic gift box
