Brand: Old World Christmas
Holiday Hearth Ornament
Item Number -
Hanging a stocking by the fireplace became popular in the 1800s. Legend has it that St. Nicholas tossed bags of gold down the chimney into stockings drying by the fire that belonged to three poor sisters who lacked dowries. Today, children still hang stockings hoping for a Christmas surprise.
Each figurative glass ornament produced by Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition 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. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
