Antique French Silver Mercury Glass Witches Ball

This is a beautiful small sized hand blown silver glass hanging witches balls, with pressed metal gallery and hanging hoop, circa 20th Century and originating from France. Very light foxing to the glass.

The witches ball originated among cultures where harmful magic and those who practiced it were feared. They are one of many folk practices involving objects for protecting the household. The word witch ball may be a corruption of watch ball because it was used to ward off, guard against, evil spirits.
