Nostalgic Christmas manufactures ornaments in the old tradition of craftsmanship, like the artisans from over 100 years ago in Germany. These precious mouth-blown Christmas ornaments are made just like in the beginning of the 19th century in Thurigia, using restored original old molds and techniques originated in Lauscha, Germany. After the glass is blown and molded into a form, they are then affectionately hand-painted, patinated and topped with the stylish iron caps in the proper traditional style. What makes these ornaments so special is the use of the original molds that have been carefully restored, so that the ornaments could be produced to look just as they did when this art form first began. As a collector, you will take great pride in owning these vintage molded decorations, and in knowing that a centuries old tradition continues whenever you lovingly hang these ornaments on your trees for the holidays!
