Vintage Swirl Glass Marble Witch's Ball Pendant

  • $ 2750

A vintage glass marble with a blue and white swirl pattern and clear air bubbles, capped with a silver plated fluted cap. This comes with a 24 inch silver chain. I thought this was reminiscent of a witch's ball, and I made it to be worn as a protection pendant. The marble is a vintage German wire pull style.

The witch's ball was originally found among cultures where witches or wise women were considered to be a blessing for the community. Traditionally, the ball was a glass sphere with a spiral or swirled design inside that was enchanted by the witch to protect against evil. The most common colors were blue and green.

The witch's ball was hung in a window, placed on top of a vase, or suspended from the fire place mantle or rafters of the house. According to folk legend, the witch's ball would lure the evil spirit with its bright color, and the spiral design would then capture the spirit and prevent it from escaping.
