ITEM #: 18044 Northern Cardinal Ornament by Old World Christmas
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. With its unmistakable black face and red body, this Northern Cardinal glass ornament truly captures the real birds bright colors and pointy head feathers.
