The Story BehindThe Clarinet evolved from an earlier single-reed, woodwind instrument in the late 1600's. It was improved over the years, and Mozart was the first composer to use the clarinet in a symphony. With its lovely and unique sound, the clarinet is equally at home in orchestras and swing or jazz bands.

Beautiful details and perfect size
Perfect ornament for my daughter who plays the clarinet… she loved it
I purchase 5 Old World ornaments every year for grands. Most from small shops until recent years. All beautiful, detailed ornaments. They will hopefully become heirlooms that adorn their Christmas trees for years to come. I purchased the clarinet for my granddaughter. Upon opening the box, she had small pieces of paint on her fingers. Closer look, the black paint is coming off in several places. The disappointment in her face was so upsetting. I have easily purchased over 50 ornaments over the years. This is the first time there has ever been an issue. Too much hassle to return.

Hi Debbye- I am sorry to hear this. I have reached out to you via email to resolve the issue. No need to return the defective item and we are sorry for the delay is resolving this issue for you. I hope your granddaughter enjoys the new item.
The ornament arrived on time and the clarinet is bigger than I originally thought and that was a nice surprise. The only problem was a couple of small areas of the black paint were chipped off. It’s too much trouble to send it back.
Beautiful Clarinet Ornament
This is a stunning ornament of one of our favorite instruments! When it arrived in the gorgeous box. I knew it was really special for my daughter who plays the instrument and had asked for a clarinet ornament this year. She was so surprised and delighted at how beautifully crafted it is! Thank you a hundred times over for your work of art that is treasured in our home.
Gorgeous - Stunning
I think this is the most beautiful ornament I’ve ever seen. It’s very delicate and the silver is very sparkly!!! I bought it for my granddaughter because she just started learning the clarinet this year. It was the talk of Christmas!!
