This double-breasted cotton jacket is reversible to hide stains & has knotted cloth buttons to survive frequent laundering. Marie-Antoine Careme developed the current chef's uniform in the mid-19th century. ''Chef's whites'' also includes the toque blanche & black/white hound's-tooth pants. White represents cleanliness. Bon appetit! This charming Old World Christmas ornament 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.
