You asked and we listened! Inspired by our customers' suggestions, these wrought iron stands are a beautiful way to display artist Stephen Kitras signature glass globes. Simple swirls and a circular base in heavy iron are a lovely complement to the delicate and intricate glass globes. Available in one-globe (at right) or three-globes (at left). Handmade in Canada.

Sold separately.

Please note that globes are meant to be hung with a loop made of anything from ribbon to fishing line. (Using ribbon with complementary color really accents the colors on the globe!) Please also note that direct sunlight and heat can wear out certain types of ribbon - so be sure to replace this as needed.

      I received a globe at Christmas as a gift, but did not have the stand. Once I got the catalog in the mail and saw that there was a special stand for it....BOOM, I got it. Now it looks even more beautiful on my mantle.

        It's obviously designed to go with the globe my daughter gave me for Christmas two years ago, but the globe's loop looks squished and is too small for the hook on the stand.

        I got my daughter the Joy globe because she has given me joy since the day she was born. I was very impressed with the size, beauty and packaging. I liked it so much that I ordered the Peace globe for myself. The stands are a perfect way to display these beautiful objects.

          I received one of the glass globes as a Mother's Day gift. I checked the website for a way to display it. The wrought iron display hanger is perfect. It looks great sitting on the coffee table in my living room.

                  You need to be clearer about the fishing line. My uncle cut it off not realizing it was the means of hanging the globe.

                    I use this product to display the "Tree of Remembrance" that a friend gave me when my husband died in an accident. The two of them make a beautiful statement on my mantle.
