The Story BehindBirds are symbols of joy and happiness, 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.
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
Beautiful ornament for my year-round tree!
The wren sits happily on a lighted tree in my living room! It arrived well-packaged, and is exactly what I hoped for.
I have been an Old World Christmas fan for many years and have quite a collection. Am happy to see I can now purchase them online...
