Blackbeard was the captain of many pirate ships, his flagship being the Queen Anne's Revenge. Blackbeard used his fearsome reputation to avoid sea battle and fighting, and in fact there is no record that he ever harmed a captive. Showing his love and respect for his crew, he once deliberately ran the Queen Anne's Revenge aground during a battle off the coast of North Carolina so that his crew would not be arrested! This Blackbeard Pirate glass ornament shows him standing with one foot on a chest of jewels and gold while a green parrot sits on his shoulder. It would be perfect to hang along with the Pirate Ship ornament on a sea themed tree or your Christmas tree. Children that love the Pirates of the Caribbean movies would love this ornament too... and maybe, just possibly so would adults!
