16070 Old World Christmas

Measures approximately 3 1/2"

Free gift box (may be plain box)

Mouth-blown, hand painted, glass Christmas ornament from Merck Family's Old World Christmas. Beautiful pear-shaped ornament with delicate details of a partridge.

In the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas," the partridge in a pear tree symbolizes Christ. Years ago, the song served as a secret means of teaching English Catholics the basics of their faith which was outlawed at the time. This carol has lost many of its old connotations and is now a merry standard of the holiday season.
