Hang Tag: Snowshoes were developed thousands of years ago as a way to travel by foot in areas covered by snow. Showshoes work by distributing a person's weight over a large area so that the person's foot does not sink into the snow. Today showshoeing is an exciting and fun way to enjoy the outdoors.
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.
