Old World Christmas "Swallowtail Butterfly" 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.
The Butterfly is a symbol of immortality. Since it evolves from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis, and then emerges as a butterfly from its cocoon, it represents the soul and the cycle of rebirth. A pair of butterflies signifies marital happiness.
