Black Bear Ornament by Old World Christmas
Holiday Decorations Category: The crafting of Glass Ornaments is an historical practice steeped in tradition and holiday spirit. At Merck Family's Old World Christmas, they are keeping that tradition alive and well. The Black Bear is one of their Glass Ornaments which are created following the practices of 19th century glassblowers. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds, and then a solution of hot liquid silver is poured inside. This process was resurrected in Spokane, Washington by Tim and Beth Merck who have been enchanted by the rich European Christmas traditions all their lives. This beautiful black bear stands atop a shining silver rock, his fur encrusted with shimmering glitter. Measuring 3¼”, he is the perfect ornament to add a little wild woodsy accent from Montana to your tree. These Glass Ornaments are true holiday gems that will add style and brightness to your collection of Christmas Tree Ornaments.
