Hang Tag: Alligators are living fossils that can be traced back 65 million years. Members of the crocodile family, their name comes from the Spanish word for lizard "el largato." Over a million alligators live in the southern United States. They are considered to be very clever and are fast learners.
Each figural glass ornament produced for The Merck Family's Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds available only to the Merck Family's Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
