Hang Tag: The origins of the Rowboat date back thousands of years. The ancient Greeks determined that attaching fixed oars to a boat provided much greater power and control when compared to using paddles. Rowboats have long been used for fishing, transportation, and recreation on lakes, rivers and seas.
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.
