Spun Cotton Craft Mushrooms
Selection of 11 sizes ~ Made in Germany
Popular decorative accents for more than
100 years, we are pleased to offer these
old-style mushrooms in a full range of 11
sizes! Made in Germany of a tightly-spun
cotton, the caps are dipped in a ruby red
lacquer, then are individually painted by
hand with white spots. The mushrooms
are on paper-covered wires, except for
the largest size which has a small hole
in the bottom of the stem.
Styled after Amanita Muscaria, which is
also known as the fly agaric mushroom,
these red-capped fungi are a symbol of
good luck in Central and Eastern Europe.
Depicted in a wide range of products
around the holidays, they are a favorite
motif representing 'Good Luck Wishes'
Christmas and the New Year.
