About Our Traditional Christmas Ornaments

Old-Fashioned Ornaments for Your Home

From minimalist designs to glitz and glamour, modern Christmas ornaments might not be what you’re looking for when it comes to decorating your tree. If you want a more traditional look that reminds you of childhood Christmases, Old World Christmas has you covered. We have an incredible selection of vintage Christmas ornaments in many styles and designs.

Our traditional Christmas ornaments resemble ornaments you might have seen on trees decades ago. Or maybe you’ve seen ornaments that were popular way back in the 19th century and early 20th century. These ornaments, usually made of glass, had hand-painted designs that gave them a unique look. At Old World Christmas, we’ve perfected techniques from the 1800s to bring you traditional ornaments with that hand-crafted quality.

Here Come Santa Claus Ornaments

Our vintage Christmas ornaments wouldn’t be complete without Santa himself. We have a wide range of antique Christmas decorations featuring Santa in various designs. From Santa climbing down a chimney to Santa enjoying a round of golf, you can find the ideal Santa ornament for your tree. Our vintage ornaments include Santa in traditional bright red and white, Old World Santa in gold and pastel colors, and midnight Santa in deep blue.

You can also find vintage Santa ornaments with Santa-related themes, like milk and cookies set out on Christmas Eve, Santa’s famous hat, or even a bag of coal for those who’ve been naughty. Looking for Santa ornaments with a specific style? We’ve got mid-century Santas, Nordic Santas, and Santas playing pickleball and fly fishing. Every Santa ornament is crafted by hand using tried and true techniques from the olden days.

Let It Snow With Snowman and Snowflake Ornaments

Christmas scenes are usually a winter wonderland filled with glittery snow. Whether you live in a real-world winter wonderland or a warmer climate, bring some snowy cheer into your home with our vintage Christmas decorations. Our collection includes snowman and snowflake ornaments designed to have an antique look. Crisp white tones, light blues, and other colors are carefully painted on each ornament to give it an eye-catching look.

Our snowman ornaments have fun designs to choose from, like a snowman with candy canes, a snowman with adorable pets, and a baby snow angel with a teddy bear. We also have frosty elf icicles, crystal snowflakes for an elegant touch, and a snow family in different sizes. No matter what kind of snowy design you want for your Christmas ornaments, you can find beautifully crafted vintage ornaments in our collection.

Noble Nutcrackers for Your Tree

Nutcrackers are one of the most recognizable Christmas symbols. You might already have nutcracker figures on tables and other surfaces throughout your home. Why not add them to your tree? At Old World Christmas, our vintage Christmas ornaments include nutcracker designs in vivid colors. Each Nutcracker ornament is painted in colors that stay vibrant over the years, so you don’t have to worry about fading.

We’ve got traditional nutcracker ornaments standing at attention in a red jacket. We also have mini nutcracker ornaments that pair well with our other miniature Christmas ornaments, like reindeer and Santa. We even have a Nutcracker Suite Collection with characters from the famous ballet, including Clara, the Mouse King, a Sugar Plum Fairy, Drosselmayer, and, of course, the Nutcracker Prince.
