Witch balls have hung in windows to "ward off witch spells and evil spirits" for over 300 years. It is said that the spirit is mesmerized by the beauty of the ball, touches it and then gets absorbed and trapped in the stands inside the ball. These are just stunning to look at and no two balls are the same, so the picture you see here may or may not be the one that you get because just like we said before NO TWO WITCH BALLS ARE THE SAME. Kitras Art Glass has done a very nice job with these. Approx. 6" balls.
