Border Collies originated as herding dogs in England and Scotland, and are still used as such all over the world. They are energetic, intelligent, responsive and have an instinctive desire to work with humans. Border Collies excel at competitive sports like agility skills and frisbee, and make affectionate, devoted pets.
The Border Collie measures 3.5". 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.
