Miniature Gurken Ornament
The Story BehindLong ago when parents decorated the Christmas tree, they hung the pickle ornament last, hiding it in the green boughs. When the children were allowed to view the tree, they would begin searching for the pickle ornament because they knew they would receive an extra gift for being the most observant.
Measurements: 1.5 X 0.75 X 0.75 (HxLxW)
Each glass ornament is mouth-blown into finely carved molds
A solution of hot liquid silver is added for exceptional color and vibrance
Ornaments are then hand-painted and hand-glittered for a fine finish
Great Family Traditions
When I was a child, my dad gave me this ornament for Christmas one year. I knew the story behind the pickle would be something great to pass down to our 5 children. One year it broke and I was heart broken. I remembered that I kept the card it came with and I was able to check to see if the company still existed. I was so overwhelmed with joy when I discovered they are still open and still crafting beautiful, wonderful ornaments. I ordered 4 of the tiny pickle ornaments, because that is the size my Father gave to me, for our 4 oldest, grown with families of their own to pass down decades of this tradition. I am truly grateful for such a wonderful tradition that is now going again in our home and the quality craftsmanship that Old World Christmas brings to my family.
Very cute and small. Hard to find which makes looking for it Christmas morning

To help combat the blues this year, I bought a lovely little white birch with lights for my living room. Sometimes all I need is a little cheer. This little beauty will be part of the look year-round (along with the hearts, it's a reminder of my late husband).
For our grand baby!
With the last name of Dill we hang a pickle for each family member. Now with a grand baby on the way this sweet little pickle is perfect! And the high quality is exactly what you expect from Old World Wisconsin!
