Hope someone can tell me what this is
« on: January 18, 2013, 08:19:22 PM »
Hello all, I am Helen.  I don't know anything about glass so I have come to the experts.  I was given this item about 15 years ago.  It was found in a garage of things. It is very pretty. The flowers and leaves are glass with wire inserted to hold the piece together. There are tiny balls that have a rough coating of something gritty. The arrangement wires are wrapped with thread and there is a loop at the top for hanging. When the flowers and leaves move together, during transport, it is like hearing chimes.  Can anyone tell me what this is? When it was made and maybe by who.  Thank you for your time.

Hello Helen,  Welcome to the Glass Message Board.
Thank you for sharing this lovely glass bouquet with us.

A while ago there was a thread started about a Glass Cherry Tree which was discovered to possibly have been made in the Phillipines.
Here is the link to the thread:
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,41913.msg232849.html#msg232849

There is a reference to a listing on eBay that may no longer work, as they don't after a while,  but if I remember correctly, it was identical to the one in the thread.

I hope you find out where yours was made,  in the meantime I will see if I can find more info foe you.
Rosie. :)
