ITEM #: 18088 Robin Ornament by Old World Christmas
Material: Spun Glass & Glass
By Old World Christmas. According to legend, robins
acquired their red breasts on the
first Christmas. A robin saw the
Christ Child shivering as the fire
began to die, so the bird flew
close to the embers and began
fanning them with its wings.
As the fire began to burn more
brightly, its heat burned the
compassionate robin's breast
and turned it red. This beautiful glass clip-on robin ornament has that deep burnt orange coloring on its belly, and its glitter accented wings compliment the spun glass fan tail.
