ITEM #: WH109 Orange with Leaf Ornament by Whitehurst Glass
Material: Polish Glass & Glitter
Handmade in Poland. Oranges are considered a staple of the American diet, yet also a coveted fruit when settlers were traversing the vast ocean on their way to America. Keeping scurvy at bay was difficult when their diet was so deficient in fruits and vegetables. Now fruit is readily available and many people envy Californians and Floridians because of the citrus fruit trees planted in their yards. This Orange with Leaves ornament looks just like the real thing you would have pulled from the tree with leaves intact. As a fan of fresh squeezed orange juice in the morning, this ornament would be a terrific tribute to your love of oranges!
