Hang Tag:  Pirates flew false flags until they were about to attack. The Jolly Roger is the traditional name for the black flags with some variation of a skull and crossbones, which were flown to identify a pirate ship at that point. Flying the Jolly Roger gave the target ship a chance to surrender without a fight.

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.
