Old World Christmas Hot Dog Glass Blown Ornament
As American as baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie. Although sausages originated centuries ago, they didn t become Hot Dogs until they were put on a bun, which first happened in St. Louis in 1880. In 1902, during a New York Giants baseball game, the term Hot Dog was coined.
This charming Old World Christmas ornament measures 4". 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.
