Accordion Christmas Ornament
38039 Merck Family's Old World Christmas
Free gift box included.
Hang Tag: The Accordion is based on an ancient Chinese instrument, but only took its modern form in the early 1800s. Its unique sound is created by squeezing the bellows which blows air over free-reeds. Traditionally associated with folk music, the Accordion has become increasingly popular with many types of music.
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.
