Calico Ball

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 3 reviews

The Calico Orb is the original friendship ornament. With 12 different everyday colour options and 8 holiday selections, this classic orb offers a beautiful mosaic of colour on its entire surface that will compliment any environment. No matter which way you turn it, this ball is sure to dazzle. The Calico Orb can also be used as a pond ball to add an extra pop of colour to the water’s depths. Don’t forget to anchor them down and remove them before the ice freezes in the winter!

Just like friends, no two are alike!

Due to the size difference, the 2" will have softer more subtle colouring than the medium and large Calicos. And, be advised, that the 2" Calico is smaller than the 2" Tree or Wish ornaments: see "Product Specs" for details.

The story tag reads “This beautiful handblown glass window ornament is traditionally known as a symbol of friendship. It sparkles in the light, the way a good friend brings sparkle to your life. The colours swirl and mingle across the surface of the ball enhancing each other, just as the talents and varied personalities of your friends bring colour to your life. This ball has intriguing ripples and ridges making it a delight to touch, as well as behold. Just like friends - no two are alike.”

Use & Care

Use a strong ribbon or fishing line to hang your ornament. The plastic hang tag was not intended to be a hanging medium and is not strong enough to hang your ornament over the long term. 

However you choose to hang your Kitras ornament, indoors or outdoors, periodically check that the hanging medium is still sound and make any necessary adjustments.

To clean your Kitras Art Glass item use a damp cloth and lightly rub it around the outside of the glass. Do this when you notice the glass has lost some of its brilliance. A simple cleaning will bring the sparkle back!
