ITEM #: DD81090 Humpty Dumpty Ornament by December Diamonds
Material: Glass, Glitter & Tulle
The Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme has origins dating back to 1797. According to an English dictionary, "the term 'humpty dumpty' referred to a drink of brandy boiled with ale in the seventeenth century. The riddle probably exploited, for misdirection, the fact that 'humpty dumpty' was also eighteenth-century slang for a short and clumsy person." It's not hard to picture humpty dumpty as a lush who fell from a wall, rather than the child friendly egg we know and love. This Humpty Dumpty Ornament displays the classic storybook character wearing his elegant red and gold suit while a gold crown sits atop his head. This ornament is perfect for those who love fairy tales and would look great displayed from any tree!
