peanut ornament

Regular price $ 8.00

Peanuts symbolize mystery since their shells completely hide their contents. Called treasures beneath the ground, nuts are also associated with wisdom because their contents are compact, sustaining, and enclosed within a single shell. Long ago peanuts were wrapped in gold or silver foil and used as Christmas tree ornaments.

This figurative glass ornament is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered.

3" x 1.25" x 1.25"
