The Christmas Glass Bell
Glass Christmas bell ornaments
The first decorated trees were adorned with apples, white candy canes, and pastries in the shapes of stars, hearts and flowers. Glass baubles were first made in Lauscha, Germany, by Hans Greiner (1550–1609), who produced garlands of glass beads and tin figures that could be hung on trees. The popularity of these decorations grew into the production of glass figures made by highly skilled artisans with clay moulds.
The artisans heated a glass tube over a flame, then inserted the tube into a clay mould, blowing the heated glass to expand into the shape of the mould. The original ornaments were only in the shape of fruits and nuts. After the glass cooled, a silver nitrate solution was swirled into it, a silvering technique developed in the 1850s by Justus von Liebig. After the nitrate solution dried, the ornament was hand-painted and topped with a cap and hook.
This ornament features a delicate red ribbon motif, delicately painted at the back of the glass. The subtle colours and shimmering finish add a touch of magic, capturing the essence of the holiday season. Display it on a mantel to create a festive ambiance that will enchant your guests. The Christmas Glass Bell is a timeless treasure that will be cherished for years to come.
