Beautiful antique 6" diameter blue mercury glass witches ball, complete with the original Victorian brass hanging gallery and loop. Dating from the late 19th Century, it is solid with no cracks or breaks - some of the mercury has worn in places to give a lovely patina. We have a collection of 9 of these balls - please see other listings for details - note this listing is for 1 ball only.
The 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.
Measures: 6" diameter
Available to view at our showroom in Chicklade, Wiltshire - by appointment only
