The art of winemaking was perfected around 3000 B.C. in ancient Egypt, and it spread around the world. Grapes are crushed, their juice fermented, and eventually the wine is bottled for consumers. Once considered to be a gift from the gods, wine is enjoyed at celebrations large and small.
This charming Old World Christmas ornament measures 4.75". 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.
