Standing in town squares, cathedrals and churches represent the heritage and culture of the people. Since glassblowers often created images that reflected their day-to-day lives, some ornaments were proudly styled after the lovely churches found in their own hometowns.

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.
