Old World Christmas

Tim and Beth Merck, a couple who share a special love for Christmas, are credited with revitalizing the art of mouth-blown, fine glass figural ornaments when they founded Old World Christmas in Spokane, Washington in 1979. As the premier brand of Christmas ornaments in the country, they now offer the most extensive and best-loved collection of over 1,400 proprietary designs in styles ranging from traditional to whimsical. Their vast selection of finely crafted and affordable ornaments offers many choices to fit your personality and style, including a great assortment of pet-themed ornaments. Each figural glass ornament is hand-crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that were first developed in the 1800s. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds made exclusively for Old World Christmas, and then a solution of liquid silver is poured inside. Finally, the ornaments are hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve their beautiful creations.
