An old, but beautiful ornament: The front of the ball shows a Christmas tree decorated with candles, the back is decorated with a cross made of five yellow stars. The soft structured surface looks like hammered metal. With the real iron cap you can fix the ball on the tree. 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.
