Hang Tag: Since ancient times, owls have been popular symbols of wisdom because they look so thoughtful and serious. Since they can see in the dark, they represent seeing through the darkness of ignorance. Some believe that when the screech owl calls, rain is on the way.
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.
