Sweet Pickle Ornament by Old World Christmas


SKU: 44719

Holiday Decorations Category: From our Glass Ornaments selection of Christmas Tree Ornaments, we bring you this glittering piece from Merck Family's Old World Christmas ornaments. The 2¾” Sweet Pickle is hand-crafted following the practices of the glassblowers of the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown in finely crafted molds and then liquid hot silver is poured inside. From there, each ornament is painted and glittered by hand. Beth and Tim Merck founded Old World Christmas in Spokane, Washington out of their love for European Christmas traditions. Pickle ornaments were special decorations in Europe. It was the last ornament to be hung on the tree, with the parents hiding it among the branches. Children would then search for the pickle knowing whoever found it would receive an extra gift left by St. Nicholas. Pass these Christmas Tree Ornaments on from generation to generation and start a heartwarming family tradition with these Glass Ornaments.
