Object of Desire: A Handblown Flycatcher from Sweden

June 21, 2018

Yes, you could make a flytrap from an empty tomato sauce jar or a dish with plastic wrap, but neither of these methods elevates the task of combatting flies in your house. This glass flycatcher, however, does.

Made of handblown glass, the jar is perched on four legs and is available from Swedish shop Artilleriet. Fill it with leftover wine, honey, or anything sweet to attract summer insects (wasps included).

The Flycatcher is 550 SEK (\$6\1.80 USD) at Artilleriet.

The glass measures about seven inches wide and \1\1.5 inches tall.

The glass flycatcher isn&#8\2\17;t a new idea: You can source antique versions from \19th-century France from Fireside Antiques and on eBay.
