  • From Old World Christmas

Let your holiday decor take flight with this stunning Purple Martin ornament from Old World Christmas, a glittering piece of artwork of one of nature's most delightful songbirds. With a span of 7.25 inches, this ornament is a sight to behold, featuring vibrant metallic hues of deep blue and rich purple that mimic the Purple Martin's natural iridescence.

Renowned for their aerial acrobatics, Purple Martins are cherished across backyards and fields, where they dance through the sky in pursuit of insects. This glass replica celebrates their dynamic essence with a tail of real indigo feathers that add an authentic and delicate touch to the craftsmanship.

As birds symbolize happiness and joy, it's only fitting to welcome this feathered friend among the boughs of your Christmas tree. Legend has it that the warm glow and gentle hum of a glassblower's flame would encourage the wintering wild birds to fill the air with their melodies, and as spring dawned, they'd spread their wings towards freedom.

This Purple Martin, however, is one you'll wish to keep around the whole year. It's a bit of the wild indoors, offering a dazzling reminder of the beauty that thrives under the open skies. Whether it's nestled among your holiday decor or suspended in a window to catch the morning light, this ornament is sure to captivate and add a touch of nature's splendor to your home.

Text on Old World hang tag: Birds are symbols of happiness and joy, 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.
