Old World Glass
The turkey is the centerpiece of today's Thanksgiving dinner, which commemorates the first Thanksgiving in 1621, when the Pilgrims and Native Americans shared a harvest meal; but the Turkey also symbolizes altruism and self-sacrifice. Fun Turkey Fact: Ben Franklin championed the turkey as our national symbol, but it lost to the bald eagle.
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.
