The first German figural ornaments were modeled from God''s most amazing creations found in nature. Therefore, pinecones were among those first ornament shapes created by German glassblowers. Due to their abundance in nature, pinecones have come to represent motherhood and fruitfulness. It''s tradition to give pinecones as gifts to represent good wishes for a happy, healthy family. People also like to keep pinecones in their own homes for good luck.
