ITEM #: 38040 Ukelele Ornament by Old World Christmas
Material: Glass & Glitter
From Old World Christmas. The Ukulele is a Hawaiian version of a Portuguese stringed instrument
brought to the islands by
immigrants in the 19th century.
It quickly became Hawaii's most
popular musical instrument, and
a favorite of King Kalkaua. The
name Ukulele roughly translates
to "jumping flea" because of the
player's rapid finger movements. A pink hibiscus flower adorns this wonderful glass Ukelele ornament, which captures the stout neck and rich brown color of the instrument.
