Growing on majestic firs and pine trees, cones are natural decorations. They were among the very first molded glass ornaments made. Cones were believed to be symbols of motherhood and fertility, so they were given to brides to hang on their Christmas trees.
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 molds 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.
