Platypus Ornament

2 reviews

MSRP: $19.99

The Story Behind

The duck-billed platypus is a very unique-looking animal of Australia. Did you know the platypus is one of only two mammals that lay eggs? When they were first discovered in the early 19th century, it took years for English biologists to believe the descriptions.

Measurements: 1.5 X 1.75 X 4.25 (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

The History of the Iconic Christmas Nutcracker

The history of the nutcracker is a beautiful story of human creativity from function to creativity. Today, the traditional Christmas nutcracker isn’t designed to actually crack a nut, and an entire ballet was created around this non nut-cracking figure. We have an entire category dedicated to nutcracker ornaments.

Sugar Cookies: The History of A Christmas Staple

We, at Old World Christmas, love Christmas cookies so much we made a few ornaments celebrating the making, decorating and eating of the cookie! We love the gingerbread boy ornament and the Ginger Cottages Gingerman Ornament as well as the snow woman chef keeping the Christmas sugar cookie tradition alive.

The Best Way to Store Glass Christmas Ornaments

Keep your ornaments safe this Christmas off-season with smart storage. Focus on creating individual space for each ornament, and store them in smaller storage boxes. Overall, we think our signature Old World Christmas boxes are the best way to store our gorgeous ornaments.
