Hang Tag: An executive once said that "a bear likes honey, why not a bear of honey?" and the bear-shaped honey bottle was born. Popular in the U.S. since its introduction in 1957, it is a cute and convenient way to serve its sticky contents. The Honeybear is an American cultural icon.
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.
