In the 18th and 19th centuries kites were used as tools for scientific research, to learn more about wind and weather. The Wright Brothers experimented with kites and contributed to the development of airplanes. Let this bright ornament soar through your beautiful Christmas tree!
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.
