The Basset Hound was bred for English hunting. The scent hounds are known as very friendly, sweet, gentle and well-behaved, although they can be very stubborn when it comes to training. Basset hounds waddle their way through life with their droopy eyes and floppy ears.
The Basset measures 4". Each figural glass ornament produced by Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds made exclusively for Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
