Glass ANIMALS on a Glass STICK ???
« on: September 21, 2014, 12:00:13 AM »
Picked these up today at a flee market.
Thought they could possibly be  stirs but the bottom tip is very sharp unlike most swizzle sticks which tend to have a ball on the end.
They seem to be very well made with lots of detail throughout the entire piece.
Any information or comments are most welcome.

They are cocktail sticks, used for the cherry. Finding the Made in Germany labelled ones on eBay is a stroke of luck. Clear match with the rooster.

Have seen this used "Lauscha Bimini" in some descriptions of these"cocktail picks" made in Germany. Am not quite sure what this means.

We have something similar - designed to help certain types of orchids stay upright.

The clear glass ones were made by Peter Keil of Glas-Hüttli in Basel-Riehen (Switzerland).

The coloured ones were made by Roger Schräpler, trained in Ilmenau (Thuringia), since 1995 working at Schloss Salem (near Lake Constance), where they have several artists showing their crafts, and selling the products. Make sure to visit his gallery

Oh Wolf,  they are wonderful.... I'm off to look at the gallery,  I grow orchids and thought my plastic dragonflies on a stick were fancy,  but these are just beautiful. :)

Only thing that can match the beauty of an orchid is glass.
