Sparkling Cathedral Christmas Ornament
20076 Old World Christmas
Free gift box (may be plain box)
Hang Tag: Standing in town squares, cathedrals and churches represent the heritage and culture of the people. Since glassblowers often created images that reflected their day-to-day lives, some ornaments were proudly styled after the lovely churches found in their own hometowns.
Each figural glass ornament produced for The Merck Family's Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds available only to the Merck Family's Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
