Pickle Ornament by Old World Christmas


SKU: 24713

If you are searching for unique Christmas Tree Ornaments, you have come to the right place! The 3¼” Pickle is one of the Glass Ornaments found in our collection of Merck Family's Old World Christmas ornaments.

These ornaments are made when molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. Then they are painted and glittered by hand. In Europe, the pickle was the last ornament to be hung on the tree, with the parents hiding it among the green boughs. When the children first saw the tree, they would gleefully search for the pickle. The children knew whoever found that ornament first would receive a little extra special gift left by St. Nick for being the most observant child. Add these Glass Ornaments to the Christmas Tree Ornaments on your tree and watch them sparkle through the holidays.
