Many legends surround the person of Saint Nicholas, who graces this glass ball. He lived in the 4th Century as a bishop in Myra / Asia Minor and was a godly and helpful man, who became the patron saint of children, sailors, merchants and bakers.
The place of origin of the glass ornaments is the area around Lauscha in Thuringia. In the beginning it was just a substitute for real fruit which a poor glass-blower could not afford. With time, the diversity of glass ornaments for Christmas trees grew. Their popularity grew and they became a real bestseller.
