The color red has long been used in Chinese celebratory occasions and it makes a dramatic statement on this lovely blown glass ornament that is accented with a gold tone painting of the Chinese symbol for longevity on the interior. Longevity is also spelled in English on the opposite side of the globe in metallic gold letters outlined in black. The top of the ornament is decorated with elegant swirls of gold also outlined in black. The symbol of longevity is perfect as a gift for a loved one and your goodwill wishes will be well received by young and old, male and female.
The eglomise technique has been around for centuries and is also called reverse painting. In this method of painting, the artist uses a special tiny hook shaped brush that is carefully inserted into the glass globe and painstakingly paints a detailed design on the interior. Because the design is painted inside, there are no worries about the design wearing off.
The message is written both Chinese and English so that the message is clear from any side of the ornament. A red cord is attached for easy hanging. It comes packaged in a red fabric gift box. Made in China. (Discontinued, 3 available)
