A Very Shiny Tradition, Part III: A Glass Garden

In the last case, we saw a paperweight that had a lamp-work flower in the middle of the little flowery cut canes.  Here’s another one.

It’s obvious the human female did NOT get a new camera for yule.

Some of the flowers are sort of…generic.  Take this white one:

That could be almost anything.

But quite a few of the paperweights on display have flowers so perfectly wrought that Sigyn can tell what they are meant to be!

There’s a waterlily…

Roses seem to be well-represented.

And then there are a number of bouquets.  Sigyn likes this one because of the blue Veronica flowers.

The detailon some of these vitreous nosegays is amazing.
