Witch Ball Aqua Globe Vintage

CAD $20.00

I find it so hilarious that something from my youth that is just a mundane item is actually totally witchy. “The Aqua Globe, is a “handblown glass ornament that waters your plants for you,” it contains a colored glass bulb attached to an elongated stem. You fill the bulb with water, jam the stem into a houseplant’s soil, and the globe releases water as needed by the dripful. “You can’t over-water, you can’t under-water…plants stay perfectly watered for up to two weeks, and you don’t have to lift a finger!” Small or large houseplants, hanging plants, patio plants, and “even finicky exotic plants” get the Goldilocks hydration.”

This my friends is totally a witch ball. I keep them in my garden to aid in protection and well the just look cool.

The word witch ball may be a corruption of watch ball because it was used to ward off, guard against, evil spirits. They may be hung in an eastern window, placed on top of a vase or suspended by a cord (as from the mantelpiece or rafters). They may also be placed on sticks in windows or hung in rooms where inhabitants wanted to ward off evil.

Witch balls appeared in America in the 19th century and larger, more opaque variations are often found in gardens under the name gazing ball. Glass studios traditionally make a witch ball as the first object to be created in a new studio.

Once used as the glass balls used on fishing nets, witch balls are in some lore associated with sea superstitions and legends.

Beautiful handmade blown glass orb to protect you & yours.
