The Fortune Cookie is an American invention with origins in California. This delicate, crisp cookie always contains a small piece of paper with a happy message inside. Now it is so popular that no Chinese meal in America is complete without one. Celebrate your good fortune with this cute glass ornament! This charming Old World Christmas ornament measures 2.75". 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.
