  • From Old World Christmas

Perched among the boughs, the Painted Bunting Ornament from Old World Christmas brings a burst of color to your tree. This 7.5-inch glass ornament is a celebration of one of the most vividly feathered friends in the avian world. With a history of glassblowers keeping wild birds to inspire their craft, it’s no wonder this ornament sings with life and color.

The Painted Bunting, often hidden in the wild, is made visible here in brilliant hues. A work of art, its body is a canvas with bold strokes of blues, greens, and reds, capturing the essence of the bird’s natural splendor. With real blue feathers fluttering at the tail and glittering accents on its wing, it's a spectacle of shimmer and texture.

Birds have long been symbols of happiness and joy, essential for a well-dressed Christmas tree. This ornament harks back to a tradition where the melody of birdsong was as integral to a glassblower’s workshop as the flame itself. And when the warmth of spring returned, so did the birds to their freedom.

This Painted Bunting is a nod to those craftsmen who worked with the sound of birds filling the air. The fluffy feathers give it an authentic touch, a sense of life amidst the glitter and glow of festive decor. Perfect for birdwatchers, nature lovers, or anyone who appreciates the bright, hopeful colors of the season, this Painted Bunting will stand out in your holiday display, a small tribute to the splendor of the outdoors.

Text on Old World hang tag: Birds are symbols of happiness and joy, and so they are regarded as a necessity on the Christmas Tree. Glassblowers often kept wild birds during the winter months since the sound of the gas flame in the workshop prompted the birds to sing. Then when spring arrived, the birds returned to freedom.
