This Old World Christmas Jolly Roger glass ornament is a combination of the Jolly Roger skull flag and a surly pirate, with eye patch and tri-corner hat that has a crossed sword design embellishing the front of the hat. Pirates flew false flags until they were about to attack. The Jolly Roger is the traditional name for the black flags with some variation of a skull and crossbones, which were flown to identify a pirate ship at that point. Flying the Jolly Roger gave the target ship a chance to surrender without a fight.

Ahoy, matey! Navigate through the festive seas with this Jolly Roger Ornament from Old World Christmas, where the spirit of adventure and the lure of treasure come alive. Standing at 3.5 inches, this glass ornament merges the infamous Jolly Roger skull flag with the swagger of a seasoned pirate, complete with a menacing eye patch and a fearsome tri-corner hat adorned with a crossed sword motif.

In the golden age of piracy, the sight of the Jolly Roger struck fear into the hearts of seafarers far and wide.
