Noah's Ark Musical Snowglobe
This enchanting addition to a baby or child's room plays a tinkling rendition of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat." Resin and glass. 7Wx8-1/2H".

Butterfly Serenity Sphere
A private sanctuary for your desktop, this clear glass globe surrounds a miniature world where a butterfly rests among dogwood blossoms. Rather than music, it plays sounds of birds and wind. Inscribed on the base is a quotation by Margaret Boyd: "Those who have hope have everything." 6Hx4" dia.

Serenity Sphere - Winter Stream

 More delicate and fleeting than any snowglobe we've found. Rather than a wind-up melody, it plays the sounds of a winter stream accompanied by loon cries and wind. Inscribed on the base is a haiku from Zen poet Basho: "Winter solitude/In a world of one color/The sound of wind" Available on Fields.com and in catalog, not available in Marshall Field's stores. 6H" This item was offered at the first price shown more than 12 months ago.
