Greyhound dogs are bred for racing. They can reach speeds up to 40 miles per hour in just six strides! In recent years dog lovers have opened their homes to adopt retired racing dogs. The gentle demeanor of the breed makes the dog an excellent family pet.
The Greyhound 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.
