Includes Free Gift Box
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.
Hang Tag: The pomegranate is one of the oldest fruits known to man. Every pomegranate has exactly 840 seeds, each surrounded by a sack of sweet, tangy juice contained by a thin skin. With its abundance of seeds, the fruit has long been a symbol of fertility, bounty, and eternal life.
