You Can’t Imitate The Real Thing

In a world of copycats, there’s only one Old World Christmas. We are proud of the quality and creativity our Christmas ornaments and Ginger Cottages represent. Sometimes we have ideas and designs that are so popular other companies take notice. And though we are flattered that our designs are getting copied and imitated (after all, copying is the highest form of flattery!), we want to ensure our customers always know they are getting the real thing.

This summer, our designer had the foresight and innovation to design three of the most popular ornaments we’ve ever sold: the Santa with his mask, dated toilet paper and glittering hand sanitizer to commemorate the wild ride of 2020. It is no surprise that other companies sprang to life to copy what we created, and we want to remind you there is nothing like the original.

2020 Toilet Paper, Masked Santa and Hand Sanitizer Ornament

We often get the question how do I know if my Old World Christmas ornament an original?  Here’s how you can make sure that you’re getting the real thing:

  • One way to ensure to you are getting the real thing is to know the price for our masked Santa COVID ornament is $27.99. The dated toilet paper ornament is $14.99, and the hand sanitizer ornament is $19.99.
  • We don’t offer seasonal sales on these pieces and neither do our retailers.
  • This price will be the same online and in our preferred retailer’s shops.
  • Be aware of deep discounts or cheaply painted ornaments made of ceramic and plastic.
  • Do some research on the seller. We have an incredible network of dealers. We have a comprehensive dealer locator on our website which is your best way to ensure you’re purchasing an authentic Old World Christmas ornament.
  • Look for the “OWC” branded charm hanging from the hook for each ornament.

Can I purchase a Santa with the mask ornament


My adult daughter had ordered an ornament on-line but was sooooooooooo disappointed when it arrived. So I searched and found Old World Christmas. I found the beautiful Chicken (Hen) that she had wanted. I purchased it and want to thank you for the nice quality. Now I’ll purchase an owl for one granddaughter and a dog for the other. An elk and bear for my grandsons. (they live in the foothills of Mt Rainer, in the woods.) I love the selection you have. Thank you…………..

I ordered the Santa with mask and the roll of TP. I had to wait till they came back in stock so was only now able to order. I was wondering are they made of real glass?


Where is the toilet paper roll ornament

I am so thrilled with my face masked Santa 2020. One day my grandchildren and hopefully then my great grandchildren will be inspired to learn of this once in a century pandemic when they see him on their tree years from now. Thank you making Santa beautiful, non threatening but very interesting. I love the sparkle in his eyes.
