Artist Stewart Sherwood’s Skating on the Pond Ne’Qwa hand-painted limited edition ornament featuring a Victorian family enjoying an afternoon ice skating on the village pond. Measures 6.75 inches high, princess shape and comes beautifully packaged in a hand crafted, satin-lined, velour presentation case. Ne’Qwa Art(TM) is the largest producer of the centuries-old tradition of painting on the inside of glass. The same meticulous techniques that captivated emperors and art connoisseurs ages ago are used to create each of our decorative accessories. From outlining to shading to color application, all work is painstakingly done in freehand. Known in the Mandarin language as ‘Ne’Qwa,’ the artistic tradition of reverse painting on the inside of glass flourished during the 17th century, when snuff bottles were valued fashion accessories in China. All ornaments are mouth-blown glass.
