Hang Tag: Since ancient times, the dove has been considered sacred, as well as a symbol of peace. In the Bible, Noah releases a dove after the flood, which returns with an olive branch in its beak to symbolize God's forgiveness, peace, and land. The dove also represents the Holy Spirit.
Each figural glass ornament produced for The Merck Family's Old World Christmas is handcrafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800s. 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.
