St. Nick, also known as a jolly old elf, derived from an anonymous poem that contained Old Santa Claus. He was affectionately thought of as chubby & plump with a little round belly that shook when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.
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.
