The crafting of Glass Ornaments is a practice steeped in tradition and holiday spirit. At Merck Family's Old World Christmas, they are keeping that tradition alive and well. The Golden Retriever is one of their Glass Ornaments which are created following the traditions of 19th century glassblowers. Molten glass is mouth-blown into carved molds, and then hot liquid silver is poured inside. This process was resurrected in Spokane, Washington by Tim and Beth Merck who have been enchanted by rich European Christmas traditions all their lives. In old England, beloved pets would often be represented in a smaller version of themselves upon a Christmas tree. Not only did they delight their master or mistress daily, their loyalty was rewarded and remembered and Christmas. This pup measures 3½” tall. These Glass Ornaments are true holiday gems that will add style and brightness to your collection of Christmas Tree Ornaments.
