Old World Christmas Blown Glass Ornament
Item # 26026
Condition: New, Mint Ornament in Beautiful Gift Box
Old World Christmas ornaments are hand crafted using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds made exclusively for Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. Each ornament is then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
Halloween has its origins in the ancient festival of Samhain, the Celtic New Year, when spirits were allowed to return to earth to visit. Christianity incorporated this into All Hallow s Eve, Oct. 31, prior to All Saints Day. The Irish brought Halloween to America in the 1840s, with the tradition of dressing in costumes and playing pranks in the hope of keeping evil spirits away.
