ITEM #: 38031 Alto Horn Ornament by Old World Christmas
Material: Glass & Glitter
From Old World Christmas. Horns are an important part of an
old-fashioned Christmas. According
to legend, loud noises frightened
evil spirits away during the
cold winter solstice, so festivals
with noisemaking were popular.
In the 19th century, bands of
horn-players paraded through
streets banishing all sorrow and
welcoming Christmas. This classic glass Alto Horn ornament has all the intricate loops and bends of the brass instrument, as well as its beautiful gold sheen and silver valves and mouthpiece.
