Masked Jack O'Lantern Ornament (Set of 2)
Item Number -
Jack O Lanterns come from the Irish legend of Stingy Jack, a man so mean the devil wouldn t let him into hell. He was forced to roam the earth using a carved turnip with a piece of coal for a lantern and was called Jack of the Lantern. Thus began the carving of pumpkins as Jack O Lanterns to place in windows to scare away evil spirits. See items 26092 and 26093
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.
