Glass Christmas ornaments are a beautiful addition to any tree. They give the tree a vibrant touch of shine and color. The line of Old World Christmas® Ornaments produces high quality glass ornaments with a high attention to detail. Tim and Beth Merck founded the company in 1979. The concept was to create beautiful, authentic Christmas collectibles that reflect the traditions and values of Christmases past, while creating a line of products that are high in quality and in craftsmanship. The variety of the Old World Christmas® ornaments ranges from traditional Santa Clauses and angels, to birds, fruits, animals, and symbols. Each piece is high in shine and is painted with the highest quality paints. They are hand blown, just like the traditional methods of ornament making used in the 1800’s. Then, a liquid silver solution is poured inside of the ornament to give it a beautiful shine. After each piece is painted by hand, glitter is added to give the piece a final shine and sparkle. Because of the meticulous process of creating each ornament, the Old World Christmas® ornaments have become a highly valued collector’s item. New lines are constantly being produced to offer customers new varieties and decorating ideas. Intricate and lovely Christmas ornaments are a wonderful way to add life to your holiday tree. They also make wonderful keepsakes for those you love and can become a family tradition in your household.
