Great Holiday Gift's and Collectibles from Old World Christmas
We offer one of the world's most extensive and best-loved collections of mouth-blown glass ornaments. Our beautiful glass ornaments are crafted by hand using traditional, old-world methods. Molten glass is carefully mouth-blown into finely carved molds. Then a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful finished creations. Produced in limited quantities and imported exclusively by the Merck Family's Old World Christmas, each is a treasure to cherish.
Holiday Lights & Light Covers™
Our beautiful holiday night lights are finely crafted, hand-painted glass figures that will literally light up your holidays! Collectors love our annual Santa Lights.™
Inspired by the magical glow of antique figural holiday lights, Tim Merck invented the Light Cover™ to slip over existing miniature lights as a decoration on trees, wreaths, and garlands to bring the warmth and charm of an old-fashioned holiday to light.
Our delightful assortment of nostalgic greeting and enclosure cards is recreated from the Merck Family's historical collection. The richly colored antique designs are beautifully printed on heavy card stock, then dusted with fine gold or iridescent glitter. Celebrate your heritage with this assortment of greeting, note and thank you cards featuring many well-loved images as well as some delightful designs you may not have seen.
Framed Shadow Box Prints
These beautiful framed and double-matted holiday prints also feature nostalgic images from our antique postcard collection. After printing, fine iridescent or gold glitter designs are applied, then die-cut mattes and prints are layered to create depth and interest. They are then framed in magnificently detailed, high-quality wood frames. In groups or alone, these exquisite pictures will be a dazzling addition to any holiday decoration collection.
