A beautiful collection of mercury glass witches balls have just arrived at Home Alchemy. Nine balls in perfect condition and of varying sizes and colours are currently gracing our home with their presence. They are all complete with their original Victorian brass hanging gallery and loop. Dating from the late 19th Century, witches ball originated in European cultures where people practising magic were feared. They would typically hang in a window and were used to ward off evil spirits.
They look exceptional as an addition to your Christmas decorations but are perfect for use all year round. Gorgeous!
