History of Snow Globes

No one knows who invented the snow globe, but they've been around since the early 1800's.  Early snow globes contained only water as the liquid and many still do, but in the 20th century sometimes glycerin began to be added to the water to slow down the falling snow and making the spectacle last longer.  For more information click here and click here.

My favorite snow globe that I own has an angel inside and a music box that plays Hark the Herald Angels.  What is your favorite snow globe that you have seen or owned?
