ITEM #: 28053 Sweet Strawberry Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. In medieval Europe, strawberries
were served at festivals
and important state occasions
to ensure peace and prosperity.
They were carved into Church
pillars to symbolize perfection
and righteousness. In provincial
France, strawberries were
considered an aphrodisiac, so
newlyweds were traditionally
served a strawberry soup. Textured with the little bumps of the seeds, this glass Sweet Strawberry ornament looks good enough to eat with its mouthwatering red color, glitter accented leafy green stem, and miniature size.
