Manufacturer: Billy Moon

An unusual vintage decorative piece marked as made by Billy Moon in Mexico. We would call this a decorative sphere, globe, ball or orb, and envision one would display this in a wonderful clear flat-type bowl or centerpiece of some type, but could be displayed on interesting woven cloth, a stand of some type (none included), or some other creative means.

Not perfectly round in shape, with a seeming greater width to the glass shape itself than the glass height, prior to the metal cap on one end. A magnet does stick to this metal cap, but not to the smaller circular piece (which we believe is brass) nearby that has the artist name and Mexico as country of origin (please see image). The larger metallic cap appears glued to the glass with a rough look around its edges as made, and a hammered look to the metal overall. The cap has no hook or means for hanging, as made.

We believe this dates to the 1980's or 1990's. We picked up two of these from the same home, one larger than the other but of similar type/family (with some slight differences explained below), this is the smaller or medium-sized one. We are concurrently listing each decorative Billy Moon sphere separately in case someone already has some of these and is only looking to add one to their collection. If you wish to purchase them both we would be pleased to ship them together in the same box to save you on postage but please contact us prior to inputting the order. The system will charge you as if each were being shipped separately, but we would be pleased to provide you the combined shipping savings.

Like the larger sphere, this one has a wonderfully textured look and feel, not a smooth surface, with ridges in the glass throughout, many of which have some brown spotting/design within them (not sure if this is touches of brown paint or what creates the brown spotting). What is different with this smaller orb, however, is that rather than having a top glass surface, here a fine light brown sawdust or sand type material has been applied over the outer glass surface. This gives this smaller sphere an even greater overall earthy, natural feel, perhaps intending it to seem as if it was just dug up out of the ground. This also gives this piece an overall light brown or lightly dirty look. Further, on this piece rather than having what we described as raised ridges on the larger one, here it seems more like the ridged areas were formed via a process cutting into the glass. Again, both pieces clearly are similar and of the same family, but perhaps the artist was experimenting with differing means of treatment for forming and decorating the glass surface, we don't know.

Vintage ball measures about 5 inches in greatest height (to top of metal cap), about 4 3/48 inches in greatest width. Unpacked, weighs slightly over 19 ounces or about 1.2 pounds.

Wonderful overall condition, but with some surface variation. Given the piece formation with an intentional rough, earthy feel and texture, nothing really seems out of place. There are no large chips, cracks, pieces missing. However, with the sawdust/sand material on the surface, on close inspection you can see variations on the surface in some places. The presence of or less applied coating in some areas causes some of the scrapes or gouges to have more of a chipped look than others (one spot near the cap and brass name piece particularly has a chipped look and may be a small surface chip, you can see this in the last image). The variation to the outer coating (whether intended or due to some wear over time) also makes some spots on the glass seem clearer than others and there are a few surface lines (which may or may not be slight scratches). Not being familiar with these Billy Moon pieces, we don't know if all this is as intended or signs of some wear, but to us, none of this seems out of place with the style of the piece, nor judged a problem (and likely not noticeable on display).

Please note that this vintage decorative orb was very difficult to photograph, so we've included images shot with and without the camera lighting, as well as holding this piece up to a source of outdoor natural light coming in through a window. If you view across all the images you should get a good idea of the interesting appearance. The red felt piece used in some of the images to hold this decor ball is not included for sale. In some images, camera light "hot spots" create white brighter spots on the glass and orange type reflection spots on the metal cap, making it seem to be rusted, but there is no rust here. The metal cap itself has a two tone, gray and dirty brown appearance as made.
