Handmade Glass Baubles
Our beautiful Lucky Glass Baubles are handmade in our glass making studio, in Bath UK.
They are available in a variety of colours, and 3 different sizes.
Each Bauble is hand signed with "Bath" and the year it was crafted and can be engraved with a message of your choice, making a really special gift for Birthdays, Christenings, Christmas or indeed any time of the year!
CHECK THE DATE: Your bauble may not have been created this year so could have an earlier year signed on it. Please add a note at checkout if you specifically want a bauble from this year.
Please note that whilst these baubles look glorious hanging in the garden they are not guaranteed frost-proof. We therefore recommend you bring them inside at night.
How We Make Our Glass Baubles
All of our glass baubles are handmade in our Bath Studio and are crafted using traditional free-blown techniques, without the use of moulds. To find out more, visit our Glass Bauble Making page.
The Tradition of the Bauble
Glass baubles have been used for various purposes throughout history. During the medieval age in Europe, glass baubles were hung in the windows of houses and cottages to ward off evil spirits, and bring good luck to the owners. These were known as 'Witching' or 'Lucky' Baubles.
Glass baubles were not associated with Christmas until the 16th Century. The German town of Lauscha, famous for it's glass works is credited with inventing glass baubles that could be given as gifts, or used for decoration at Christmas. Over time, the custom of giving glass baubles at Christmas became more popular, as evidenced today.
