2018 Snowflake Bentley Ornament

SKU #02-029-1714-18

Introducing the 2018 Bentley Snowflake. In 1885, W.A. Bentley, a self- educated Vermont farmer who adapted a microscope to a bellows camera, became the first person to photograph a single snow crystal. "Snowflake" Bentley would go on to capture more than 5000 snowflakes during his lifetime, not finding any two alike.

Each year the Jericho, Vermont Historical Society commissions us to make one unique ornament based on Bentley's original photographs. A story card describing Bentley's work and an imprinted flannel pouch is included in each ornament gift box. The 2018 Snowflake ornament measures 2" x 2 1/2" and is tied with a wine colored satin ribbon. 2018 is on the front as the identifying date that it was introduced to the collection. A portion of all sales support the Historical Society. The photograph of the original snowflake is shown above, along with a picture of W.A. Bentley.

The 2018 Snowflake Bentley is NOT included in our Buy 6 get the 7th Free Ornament promotion. (Due to the fact that this is a commissioned piece for the Jericho Historical Society.)

This ornament is not available wholesale. It is only available for retail.

I get these ornaments every year for XMas presents for nieces and god-daughters - they'll have a wonderful collection by the time they have their own trees.

I have sent this particular ornament to my sister in Virginia for the past 8 years. Our children, and now our grandchildren, have learned about Snowflake Bently's incredible ability to photograph snowflakes so long ago.

Every year, I give my son the snowflake ornament to hang on the Christmas Tree. Someday, when he moves out into his own place and has his first real tree, I will hand him all these beautiful snowflakes! For us, what makes this even more special, is that I grew up in Vermont and this is a piece of my story that I pass along to him. Beautiful, sentimental and outstanding quality.

I have bought yours Snowflake Bentley ornaments since you started making these beautiful ornaments some years ago. I lived in Vermont for 40 years and enjoyed walking into your Burlington store or the craft fair to purchase your newest ornaments. The snowflakes is a tradition for my Godson & he enjoys receding them. You capture the charm & Beauty of the snowflakes that Snowflake Bentley spent his life cataloguing. I look forward to next years wonder. Jeannine

I have given my daughter a Snowflake Bentley ornament for her tree for a least five years now. She delights in hanging them on her tree. She now decorates her tree all in snowflakes and the cherished ornaments I have given her.
