Records dating back to the 11th century show a brisk trade in bottles of qatarmizat (lemon juice & sugar) in the Jewish community in Egypt. We continue to enjoy this refreshing beverage, fresh-squeezed, at home or purchased at the neighbor kid s lemonade stand!
This charming Old World Christmas ornament measures 3.75". 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.
