Old Word Christmas St Francis Glass Ornament

Born the son of a wealthy cloth merchant, St. Francis preferred a simple life based on the teachings of the Gospels. He preached purity, peace, and service to the poor, and founded the Franciscan order. Canonized after his death in 1226, Saint Francis is the patron saint of animals and the environment. 

  • Size: 4.75"

About Old World Christmas: Each figural glass ornament produced for The Merck Family's Old World Christmas 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 moulds available only to the Merck Family's Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
