|Witch's Balls were very popular in 18th century England, but their actual origin is thought to be much older. For well over 300 years hollow glass spheres have been hung in windows to ward off witch's spells, evil spirits and ill fortune. Hanging these decorative balls in the window is thought to tantalize evil spirits which may be threatening a home's tranquility. The evil spirit is mesmerized by the ball's reflective beauty. When the spirit touches the sphere it is absorbed and trapped in the web-like strands of the glass inside the ball. Because they're similar to the glass balls used by fishermen on nets, witch's balls are also associated with many sea superstitions and legends. (On a dialup?

"Received the witch's ball dreamspayer on Saturday. It's simply stunning. Freshly tilled soil in the garden made the 3-prong bracket somewhat unstable after it ran for a while and the soil became muddy. I attached it to a cement stepping stone (with the original 3-prong bracket below the stone). Raised it up slightly with spacers, so the snap-on hose connector cleared the stone. Extra strap on front eliminated any front-to-rear play and I plumbed the riser rod dead-on vertical. It spins smooth as silk now. Thanks again for such quick service and a great product." Jim G.
