The Lone Star State is known for its cowboy culture and famous longhorn cattle. The Texas landscape is diverse, including cacti and is now decorated with oil drilling wells due to its rich supply of oil. Texans have adopted the armadillo as their mascot and lovingly decorate with the armor-plated critter.
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.
