Named spheres of light by Antonio Neri in 1612, the first gazing globes date back to 13th century Venice. Popularized in the Victorian era, the mirrored finish provided a fish-eye view of the entire garden and they were believed to fend off misfortune and deliver happiness and joy. Add color, charm, and good luck to your garden with these sparkling garden jewels from ACHLA Designs. These glass balls are blown in a layered technique that gives a crackly appearance over the colored glass and mirror finish while retaining structural integrity. The three hand forged leaves of the Trestle Stand cradle your gazing ball for delicate support. Spiked feet at the base ring can be pushed right into plantings, lawns or garden beds.
