Legend says the first Christmas Tree was created by Martin Luther. Walking in the forest one Christmas Eve, he was inspired by snow-covered trees reflecting moonlight and twinkling stars showing through their branches. So he cut a small fir tree, took it home and decorated it simply with candles for his children.
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.
