The glass blowers found most of their inspiration in nature, for example the pinecone. That it was later given a face is probably owed to the stories and legends that were told in the evening in the parlours. This pinecone is painted, then patinated and covered with glass mica. Its face, which looks like a wood sprite is painted true to detail. The ornament is closed with a real iron cap.
Marolin Ornaments are known for its handcrafting of both papier mâché and mouth blown glass ornaments in the Lauscha traditions. These ornaments are mouth-blown glass with hand painted details.
