Miniature Gherkin 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 Miniature Gherkin is one of the Glass Ornaments found in our collection of Merck Family's Old World Christmas ornaments. This Spokane, Washington company was founded in 1979 by Tim and Beth Merck, a couple who shared a special love for European Christmas traditions. Each figurative glass ornament 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 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. This 1½” Miniature Gherkin is the perfect shiny green delight to show your love of delicious and exotic food! Add these Glass Ornaments to the Christmas Tree Ornaments on your tree and watch them sparkle through the holidays.
