Material: Glass & Feathers
From Old World Christmas. Birds are symbols of happiness
and joy, and 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. The rainbow of colors on this Lilac Breasted Roller are surprisingly as accurate as the real bird, except this ornament has lilac colored tail feathers in place of the two long thin tail feathers the real bird on the edges of its tail.
