A 1999 Collector's Club Ornament
From Merck Family’s Old World Christmas comes “A Very Merry Santa”; an Old World Christmas 1999 Collectors Club exclusive ornament. This long retired and hard to find ornament is made of mouth blown-glass and is hand-painted and glittered. “New”, in mint condition from The Holiday Shop of Saratoga Springs store stock, this festive little fellow measures 3 ½” and is topped with the star cap trademark, signifying its authenticity as an heirloom ornament hand-crafted by Inge-Glas of Germany. It comes in its original Old World Christmas Collectors gift box.
Using antique molds, each exquisite ornament was painstakingly mouth-blown into an original antique mold. Once the ornament cooled, a solution of hot liquid silver was poured inside, giving the ornament its shine and reflectivity. After this stage, the ornament was elegantly hand-painted in festive Christmas colors. Finally, the long stem was carefully cut and the distinctive star cap attached. It took approximately seven days to create this heirloom quality ornament!
Inge-Glas was founded by the direct descendants of the original glassblowers of Lauscha, Germany. Passed down through thirteen generations, this family of gifted artisans represents a living legacy to the exceptional talent needed to create these unique collectibles
