Locomotives are associated with Christmas, since that is when many children are first introduced to toy trains. Who can forget the excitement of Christmas morning and discovering a speeding locomotive pulling its cars beneath the family Christmas tree or winding through a toy village?
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.
