Stained Glass Barber Shop Pole Globe

What is a stained glass Barber Shop globe?
The idea has been around for years and the use of stained glass atop a barbershop pole is a special addition to these historic barber shop signs. They can also be set on top of old lamp sconces.

This is the stained glass globe by itself.

Today there may be a small handful of glass studios that produce these globes but one stands far above the rest. "Barber Shop Globes" appropriately named is a leader in manufacturing these decorative globes by master craftsmen using century old glass techniques.

The process making these globes is a timely one where glass has to be "slumped" in a kiln and assembled using copper strip and finished off with solder.

To be continued...

From WIKI: A barber's pole is a type of sign used by barbers to signify the place or shop where they perform their craft. The trade sign is, by a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages, a staff or pole with a helix of colored stripes (often red and white in many countries, but usually red, white and blue in the United States). The pole may be stationary or may rotate, often with the aid of an electric motor.[1][2]

A "barber's pole" with a helical stripe is a familiar sight, and is used as a secondary metaphor to describe objects in many other contexts. For example, if the shaft or tower of a lighthouse has been painted with a helical stripe as a daymark, the lighthouse could be described as having been painted in "barber's pole" colors.
