Old World Christmas Avocado Glass Blown Ornament
Legend has it that the first avocado was eaten by a Mayan Princess in Mexico around 300 B.C. It is also known as the alligator pear which describes the fruit s texture and pear shape. This beautiful glass ornament was carefully crafted for you to enjoy as a holiday decoration.
This charming Old World Christmas ornament measures 3.75". 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.
