Each icicle is hollow flameworked borosilicate glass and strung with a green cord. Gift boxed.

 

They are all one of a kind and range in length from 10-20cm (3.5-7.5"). The small icicles are 11mm in diameter, ( 7/16", just shy of 1/2"). When you buy 12, you only pay for 10. Each comes individually boxed so if you give some as gifts, everyone still has the story.  This story is on the back of every box:

 

WHEN F.W. WOOLWORTH FIRST BROUGHT CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS TO THE UNITED STATES IN THE MID-EIGHTEEN HUNDRED’S, HE GOT THEM IN LAUSCHA, GERMANY, A SMALL TOWN IN WHAT IS NOW EX-DDR THURINGIA. WHEN I FIRST STARTED FLAMEWORKING, THE FIRST THING I DID WAS GO TO LAUSCHA TO STUDY. I WAS QUITE FORTUNATE TO STUDY WITH AN ENTIRE GENERATION OF MASTER GLASSBLOWERS NOW NO LONGER WITH US. THIS ICICLE ORNAMENT IS BASED ON AN OLD LAUSCHA ORNAMENT AND REFERENCES NOT ONLY THE BIRTHPLACE OF ORNAMENTS, BUT ALSO THE HOME OF FLAMEWORKING. EACH ICICLE IS ONE OF A KIND AND MADE FROM BOROSILICATE GLASS IN SCOTLAND BY CARRIE FERTIG.
