Known for its playfulness and bushy tail, the squirrel is found on every continent except Austrailia and Antarctica. Its tail can be used for balance, as a form of parachute when falling from a high tree, or as a blanket in cold weather. This ornament is a beautiful depiction of a hungry little squirrel.
Each figural glass ornament produced for The Merck Family's Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800s. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds available only to the Merck Family's 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.
