Old World Christmas
The Merck Family's Old World Christmas was founded by Tim and Beth Merck, a couple who shared a special love for Christmas, especially its rich traditions in the European style.
The Mercks are credited with revitalizing the art of mouth-blown fine glass ornaments as a result of their reintroducing figural designs to the United States in 1979. Today, The Merck Family's Old World Christmas is one of the leading distributors of the world's most extensive and best-loved collections of mouth-blown figural glass ornaments.
Each collectible glass ornament 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 before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside.
The glass ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations. These exquisite figural glass ornaments are handcrafted in China using the very best German paints and glitters by the Merck Family's skilled craftsmen.
