Snow Storms,Sand Storms, All Shook Up

The very first glass Snow Storm was made for the Great Exhibition in Paris . Containing a mini Eiffel Tower it set a trend for depicting famous landmarks within a glass, liquid filled ball. Wherever I go I keep my eyes open for such. 'Kitsch' maybe, but they satisfy the child within. Here are a few of mine. Sadly,a very special one broke.
There are more, but for Christmas display only. The tiny one plus tree as shown above ,I've allowed ...Sort of an Advent for Advent gesture.
If any readers know of places I can find similar to add to this little collection please let me know .My preference is for the spherical as opposed to the new plastic domed variety .
