Old World Christmas
The Merck Family’s Old World Christmas provides high-quality, traditionally designed, hand-crafted collectibles that are created with even more attention to detail than those produced 100 years ago. They offer one of the world’s most extensive and best-loved collections of mouth-blown glass ornaments. These beautiful glass ornaments are crafted by hand using traditional, old-world methods. Molten glass is carefully mouth-blown into finely carved molds. Then, a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful finished creations.
