Hang Tag: The spinning top is one of the world's oldest toys. Clay tops have been discovered as far back as 3500 BC, so children have played with spinning tops for many centuries. More recently, the simple toy still provides fun and fascination on Christmas morning.
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.
