The legend of Santa Claus is derived from the European figure of St. Nicholas. Throughout Ireland he is know as Daddy of Christmas or Father of Christmas. This Santa proudly wears the traditional green clothing of Ireland and carries a pot of gold adorned with a shamrock. This Irish Santa will grace your Christmas tree with the "Luck of the Irish." Don't forget to leave a mince pie with a pint of Guinness for Santa and a carrot for Rudolph on Christmas Eve.
Each figural glass ornament produced by 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 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.
