Hello all.

This is something I've been trying to source for several years now. My grandmother had this unique diorama with an angel on the inside. She seems to think the ball was made of resin, roughly the size of a small soccer ball (if that makes any sense :lol:) The ball was snow white and covered in blue, silver, and white glitter. The interior was lit, and the angel inside was encompassed in white strands of silky material. I'd love to be able to replace this for her. She really misses it. I've searched the internet pretty diligently looking for clues to no avail.

All help is welcome. :)

What you are describing seems familiar to me--maybe 1960's, 1970's? Why not try this site--which is filled with Christmas catalogs spanning assorted years.

I'd start with all the 60's and 70's Christmas catalogs. First, go to the Christmas decoration sections--but also look in the lighting sections.

You just might find more info on this/an actual picture/which would enable you to expand your search at auction sites/or on ebay for example.
