Spun Glass from Germany
Angel Wings and Bird Tails ~ Circle Halos
"Feen-Haar" Spun Glass Angel Hair
These authentic spun glass trims are made for Blümchen in Lauscha, Germany. In early February 1990, just a few months after the wall came down between East and West Germany, we ventured into Lauscha. Driving up the winding mountain roads of Thüringia, while gentle snowflakes fluttered down, the first sight of this historic village made us feel that we had stepped back in time. Gray slate homes lined the steep roads, many with signs for the glassblowers' "Werkstatt" located within. We spotted a small metal sign on the corner of a building which read "Glasspinnerei" -- and we had found a manufacturer of spun glass! Their first American visitors, the craftsman warmly welcomed us into his workshop, gave us a tour, and even demonstrated on the antique machinery how the spider web-fine threads of glass are created!
Spun Glass Circles
Smaller Sizes in White and Fancy Colors
In Victorian times, ethereal ornaments made of spun glass were a favorite on Christmas trees in Europe and America. These gleaming circles of super-fine filaments of spun glass were traditionally decorated with die-cut scrap pictures
and Dresden trim embellishments
, so why not create beautiful heirloom ornaments of your own? Our exclusive selection includes spun glass circles in eight sizes, as well as in six different fancy colors.
