Twinkle Twinkle. Reflective Glass Baubles.
These tree decorations are mouth-blown over a flame and then immersed in a silver solution on the inside to give them a mirror finish. In around 1880, the Lauscha glassblowers started indenting or grooving the surface of the still hot glass ornaments to enhance the sparkly mirror effect: By using a plaster stamp with engraved decoration, a so-called “Reflexform” (i.e. a reflecting hollow form) is pressed into the blown and reheated bauble. These handcrafted reflective ornaments from Thuringia have been made according to this tradition. The baubles are hung up on an attached metal eyelet, just as they were in around 1900.
