For almost fifteen thousand years the dog is the faithful companion of man, who often defends his master and his possessions under risk of their lives. This shimmering brown tree ornament honors the family favorite. 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. This hand made item comes to you safely packed and together with an MAROLIN® certificate of authenticity.
