Hang tag: Just as no two people have the same fingerprints, no two zebras have the same pattern of stripes. Their distinctive stripes provide camouflage in the tall grass and confuse predators by making it difficult to pick out an individual from the herd.
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.
