Hang Tag: Saturn, the planet named after the Roman god of agriculture and the harvest, may have gotten its name from its golden color. It is associated with the ancient festival of Saturnalia, the winter celebration of light & renewal on December 25th.
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.
