Buffalo Ornament by Old World Christmas
Holiday Decorations Category: If you are searching for unique Christmas Tree Ornaments, you have come to the right place! The 3½” Buffalo is one of the Glass Ornaments found in our collection of Merck Family's Old World Christmas ornaments. This Spokane, Washington company was founded by Tim and Beth Merck, a couple who shared a love for rich European Christmas traditions. Following 19th century practices, molten glass is mouth-blown into carved molds before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. Then the ornaments are hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps. Deep forests surrounded the cottages of the glassblowers. Animals ventured near from the woods and many of these creatures served as inspiration for charming ornaments such as this glittering buffalo standing among the amber waves of grain. Add these Glass Ornaments to the Christmas Tree Ornaments on your tree and watch them sparkle through the holidays.
