Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About Snowglobes and Glitter Globes
Snowglobes are made from a variety of materials, both synthetic and real, including porcelain, wood, plastic, metal and glass. The snowglobes available at The Bradford Exchange are always designed by master artisans and expertly crafted from the finest materials so that they will last for many years to come.
Standard glitter is used in most glitter globes. However, sometimes diecut hearts and other symbolic shapes are used as well in addition to the glitter. These are made of plastic.
Most of the liquid inside of snowglobes is water, with some light oil and antifreeze mixed in to prevent the snow, glitter and shapes from falling to the bottom too quickly.
The liquid inside of snowglobes is potentially toxic, but only if you were to break it open and drink it.
Most snowblobes cannot be repaired. If you have a snowglobe that you love, the easiest way to preserve it is to treat it with care. This will ensure a long life for your snowglobe without the worry of it breaking.
