As described by
Made by miners in eastern Europe, probably Poland or Czechoslovakia. Woven from plastic detonator wires around discarded glass wine bottles. These objects were not made for their own use but for sale to tourists or other village people. The miner's made them as they were waiting for their shifts to start or perhaps when the mine had to be evacuated for explosive gases. We liken this folk craft to scrimshaw that the sailors made during their sea voyages.
