Baby's First Christmas Ornament
Baby's First Christmas.
In the Victorian era, infants were dressed in miniature versions of adult clothing. At their most relaxed, babies were dressed in white gowns. It wasn't until the 1950's that Walter Artzt designed the first baby onesie, creating a comfy and simple way to keep infants cozy.
This ornament looks like a little baby onesie with two baby feet and "baby's first christmas" in silver.
3.25" x 2.75" x 1".
Each figurative glass ornament produced by Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds made exclusively for Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
