The Story BehindBirds are symbols of joy and happiness, and so they are regarded as a necessity on the Christmas tree. Glassblowers often kept wild birds during the winter months since the sound of the gas flame in the workshop prompted the birds to sing. Then when spring arrived, the birds returned to freedom.
Measurements: 1.5 X 1.25 X 5.5 (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
I ordered five different birds. When they arrived, the swallow's tail feathers were detached. I immediately contacted customer service and two days later the new swallow has shipped. That is what I call great customer service! I love these birds - they are beautifully designed and remind me of my grandmother's Christmas tree. I cherish having a reminder of her during the Holidays.
The ornament is beautiful.
