January 1940, Irving Naxon received a patent on his Beanery, a slow cooker inspired by his Lithuanian mother. Since Jews were forbidden to work on the Sabbath, they would take a pot of cholent (bean stew) to a bakery on Friday to slowly cook in the residual oven heat.
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.
