ITEM #: 18020 Pheasant Ornament by Old World Christmas
Material: Glass & Feathers
From Old World Christmas. Birds are symbols of happiness
and joy, so they are regarded
as a necessity on the Christmas
tree. Glassblowers often kept
wild birds during the winter
months since the sound of the
gas flame in the workshop
prompted the birds to sing.
Then when spring arrived, the
birds returned to freedom. Just like a real Pheasant, this glass Pheasant ornament has the green and red head, and even the long striped tail feather of this bird species. It's textured body looks very feather-like and has different types of lacquers on it.
