This collectible solid glass marzipan pear is created from finely ground colored glass powders using variations of the centuries old technique of pate de verre. Meticulous attention to detail has gone into the construction of each of our pieces to enhance its appeal and collectibility.
This inedible confection is from our 'Marzipan Collection' and is just one of our many delectable treats. We design our art glass delicacies to evoke memories of innocence, love and happy times. These pieces are created to tease, seduce, tempt and delight. Use them to create a unique display in a favorite heirloom dish or cabinet for your home or office. They are also perfect and thoughtful gifts for yourself or your friends.
This glass marzipan pear measures approx. 1.5" x 1.5" x 2" and sits in a fluted glassine paper candy cup. The bottom of the marzipan is covered in felt to protect the surface it will sit upon. Each of our beautiful glass treats is signed (Hulet), dated and comes to you in a small gift box with an enclosure card telling a bit about the piece.
This listing is for 1 glass marzipan pear as seen in the first photo. The third photo shows an example of the slight variation between the individual handmade pears. The final photos show other of the glass goodies in our Marzipan Collection.
**As shown in the 6th & 7th images, the pear is too tall to fit into our gift boxes when the box is closed. Thus the pear must be laid on its side when the pear is stored in the closed box.**
