Old World Christmas Cappuccino Glass Christmas Ornament

Today we know this lovely drink as double espresso, hot milk & foam; yet it only became popular outside Italy in the 1930s, when it was served in cafes in Austria & Germany. The name is inspired by Capuchin friars due to the color of their red-brown robes, as well as their hoods (aka, little cappuccio ).
  • Size: 4"h

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.
