The seam holding the glass sides together is very obvious. Not happy that blown glass has a seam. Hummingbirds enjoy it, though.
Hey Charla, I know that it looks like a fusion line but it is not. The line has something to do with the process that we use to put the glass threading on the feeder. Before we had glass threading it was plastic and there was no line like that. It is blown glass. It is blown into a mold and this particular model is actually hand twisted. Then they clamp it to add the glass threading. When they clamp it makes that line. Hopefully that clears things up for you. Have a grateful day.
My overall experience was great! My hats off to the entire Grateful Gnome team. You have the best customer service ever.
