"Ariadne" is 10.5" (270 mm) high-blown glass Christmas tree topper in a brilliant shiny red. The glass blower has skillfully shaped the portion above the ball in an onion shape which extends into a tall spire. Truly the skill of a master glass blower to create a graceful design. A beautiful artistic pattern has been added in glitter by the designer. The very top has been encrusted in sparkling gold glitter, a matching band of glitter is placed around the bottom opening and the artist has also put a ring of gold glitter separating the two portions highlighting the skill of the glass blower. Curls of matching glitter with a beautiful fleur-de-lis styled pattern highlighted with touches of bright pink glitter transforms this tree topper into a lovely modern design. Each glass finial is painted individually which makes them unique and adds some small variations to each product in height and bottom opening.
