This exquisite Cherry Blossom Waterglobe—with its pink petaled showers enveloping a miniature cherry tree—is the kind of thoughtful gesture that has been known to induce tears of happiness from a mother, a daughter, a loved one. All the more beautiful for the butterfly that thinks it’s a flower, the silver-plated base is aptly inscribed with Ralph Waldo Emerson’s liberating quote: “Scatter joy.” Resin, glass.  5"h. x 4.5"dia.

Museum Provenance

Springtime in Washington D.C. is a celebration of the budding beauty of cherry blossoms, the international hope for peace that prompted Tokyo’s gift of the cherry trees to the United States in 1912. In the Spring, thousands of families and visitors pour into the many museums of the Smithsonian Institution. Cherish a recent visit or start planning one today as you shop cherry blossom-inspired gifts evocative of designs on fabrics, ceramics, paintings, scrolls and enamel work in the collections of our Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery.

Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
