Introducing the 2020 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. We have been replicating these pewter snowflakes since 1997.  A story card describing Bentley's work and an imprinted flannel pouch is included in each ornament gift box. The 2020 Snowflake ornament measures 2 3/4" wide x 2 1/2" tall and is tied with a wine-colored satin ribbon. 2020 is on the front as the identifying date that it was introduced to the collection. A portion of all sales supports the Historical Society. The photograph of the original snowflake is shown above.
