Christmas Striped Bauble
Made by Scott Benefield
Striped glass bauble, hand made by Scott Benefield in Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland.
Scott Benefield makes a limited number of handblown glass baubles in the run-up to the holiday season. The classic white striped bauble is a mainstay, and is made each year, but he also does some variations on that from time to time. These ornaments are eggshell-thin so they won’t weigh down the boughs of your tree, and the white decorations stands out nicely against the greenery. Alternately, they can be hung in a window, along a bannister or wherever you need a little Christmas cheer.
Size: approx. 85mm in diameter.
Please note; the beauty of handmade is that no two products will be exactly the same. All items are handmade, this means the product may vary slightly from the image.
