Hang Tag: The exact invention date and inventor are unknown for this functional tool. Its design has remained basically the same over the years. Interestingly, the Toilet Plunger has alternative uses. Plungers have been used successfully for CPR, and a woman used one to fend off a burglar by knocking away his gun.
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.
