Collection: Handblown Glass Lightning Rod Balls

Hand blown , Artist signed (me), Glass Lightning Rod Balls. Now with protective Copper Caps. These are high quality glass globes handblown and designed to accommodate from 3/4 -7/8 inch diameter posts. Please check the diameter of your posts to ensure fit.  Custom orders and custom colors welcome!

Historically Lightning Rods were embellished with ornamental glass balls (now prized by collectors). The ornamental appeal of these glass balls were also used in weather vanes. The main purpose of these balls, however, was to provide evidence of a lightning strike by shattering or falling off.

Today these highly collectible balls can grace the inside of your home on antique lightning rods (available here as well) embellishing a table or in a corner of a room.  They are also beautiful outdoors in your gardens!
