ITEM #: 110015 Sugared Strawberry Ornament by Inge Glas of Germany
Material: German Glass & Glitter
From Inge Glas of Germany. Where some people like to dip their strawberry in sugar before they eat it, this one comes completely 'sugared' in red glitter with white dots for the seeds and green glittered leaves! In medieval Europe, strawberries
were served at festivals
and important state occasions
to ensure peace and prosperity.
They were carved into Church
pillars to symbolize perfection
and righteousness. In provincial
France, strawberries were
considered an aphrodisiac, so
newlyweds were traditionally
served strawberry soup. Today we like to eat them for health reasons or dip them in chocolate for dessert!
