Witch Balls
Olde English Witch Balls - High energy colors make these handmade ornaments perfect for wishing friends and family good health and happiness. Witch Balls were very popular in 18th century England, but their actual origin is thought to be much older. For well over 300 years hollow glass sps have been hung in windows to ward off witch's spells, evil spirits and ill fortune. Hanging these decorative balls in the window is said to tantalize evil spirits. The evil spirit is mesmerized by the ball's reflective beauty. When the spirit touches the sp it is absorbed and trapped in the web-like strands of glass inside the ball.
THIS AUCTION IS FOR A EXTRA LARGE WITCH BALL 15-18" IN AROUND 7- 9"in ACROSS & MULTIPLE STRANDS.
