Glistening Walnut

28095 Merck Family's Old World Christmas Introduced 2010

Walnut ornament made of mouth blown, hand painted glass. Measures approximately 1 3/4"

Walnuts were frequently part of early Christmas celebrations. Tiny candles stick in walnut shells were set afloat in a pan of water. The little boy's candle that burned the longest would have the lonest life. The girl's candle that stood upright the longest would have the best husband.
