ITEM #: 18038 Western Goldfinch Ornament by Old World Christmas
Material: Glass, Spun Glass Tail
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. This glass Western Goldfinch ornament has the distinctive black and white wings, yellow body and black marking on its head that make it unmistakably recognizable, with the added flare of a spun glass tail.
