Hang Tag: Nestled in quaint little villages, cottages represent the heritage and culture of the glass ornament artisans. They often created images that reflected their day to day lives. Therefore, cottage ornaments were proudly styled after the humble homes in which the glassblowers lived and worked.
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 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.
