With a gentle shake of each exquisite orb and a quick reading of the seasonal Haiku engraved on each base, you can relive that “perfect day” or anticipate a cherished season’s return with these Four Seasons Waterglobes. The gracious cherry trees of Spring rain their blossoms upon a landscaped bridge; the elegant lilac trees of Summer shelter a statue inspired by American sculptor August St. Gaudens; the scarlet-leaved trees of Autumn shower the fall landscape with fiery sparkles; and the bare birch trees of Winter welcome gentle snowfalls. Resin, glass. 5"h. x 4"dia. each.
They recall decorative accessories in our American History Museum’s Division of Home and Community Life.
