Small Hand Pressed Snowflake Medallion

Regular price $8.00 $0.00 Unit price per

Hand-pressed from recycled glass, these little hanging medallions showcase one of the first photographed snowflakes. William Bentley managed to photograph the snowflake in 1885 using a camera attached to his microscope. 
Flash forward to today and Chris Salmon of Old Hancock Glass turned that photograph into a graphite stamp to be pressed into glass….fun enough the process that Chris uses to make the medallions predates the 1885 photograph by over 100 years!

When placed in a sunny window swirls of purple lace through the light.

Note: Each medallion is unique, 'no two are the same' really applies here 

Handmade in Antrim, NH by Old Hancock Glassworks

medallions are approximately 2” in diameter
