The History of Christmas Ornaments

In a tiny village tucked away in the mountains of central Germany, the Christmas ornaments we admire today were born. The town of Lauscha, Germany was famously known in the late 16th century for their specialty glassworks, including bowls, beads, drinkware and glass eyes. Around German Europe, families would decorate their Christmas trees with nuts, fruits and tinsel and apples (to represent the forbidden fruit discussed in the Bible), but this tradition was too costly for some lower class families. In 1847, a direct descendant of Lauscha’s first glass maker, Hans Greiner had an epiphany: create Christmas tree decorations that last beyond one Christmas. He went to work creating Christmas ornaments, or Baubels, in the shape of fruits, nuts and other simple designs. Soon the idea to decorate the Christmas tree with these hand-blown glass Christmas ornaments would spread like wildfire and start a worldwide tradition that continues on to this day. 

For more on the history of why Christmas trees have ornaments and other Christmas-inspired tidbits, visit the Old World Christmas blog!

How Christmas Ornaments Are Made Today

Christmas ornaments today have taken on shapes, sizes, colors and designs that would leave Hans Greiner speechless. What’s most impressive, though, is that Christmas ornaments are made in the same way now as they were in 1847, like the Christmas ornaments from Old World Christmas. We’ve taken the time to understand how traditional Christmas ornaments are made, and strive to create the most beautiful, handmade, mouth-blown Christmas ornaments for our loyal customers to cherish and pass down for years to come.

Using heat from a flame, clear glass cylinders with a long blow-pipe are turned consistently, evenly heating the glass. As the glass heats, it softens and glows. This glow tells us when it’s ready to expand and take the shape of the chosen mold. Once the entire bubbled end is glowing and hot, the glass maker blows into the long tube, using air to fill the end of the glass bubble and expanding it into the chosen mold. In order to prevent shattering, the glass maker gradually lowers the temperature to a less intense flame. The newly shaped glass is added to the annealer, (oven for ornaments) to cool. Then, a silvering solution is poured into the Christmas ornament’s stem and the entire thing is dipped into warm water, activating the silvering chemicals for a mirror-like finish of the Christmas ornament. 

Once this is complete, the Christmas ornaments are dipped in lacquer for color and hand painted to accentuate their unique characteristics. The painter will then make an incision on the stem, snap it off, and cover the top with a cap. Now the Christmas ornament is complete and ready for its new owner. We also have custom ornaments available so you can add a personal touch.
