Old World Christmas "Bald Eagle" Glass Ornament
Each mouth-blown fine glass ornament produced by Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800’s. The ornaments are hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
For centuries it was believed that the eagle could look directly into the sun and that it was reborn by diving into a fountain. Christians adopted this symbolism, comparing the eagle looking into the sun to Christ looking at His Father and the fountain as the renewal of the soul through baptism. Today, an eagle may often be spied on the baptismal fonts in older churches.
