Popcorn has been enjoyed for thousands of years in the Americas where it originated. Today, popcorn is a popular snack at the movies, county fairs, and at any casual event. The Popcorn ornament serves as a wonderful reminder of all the fun times when it has been eaten with family or friends.
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.
