The Wren - Birds are Symbols of Happiness

The Wren 18082

18082 Merck Family Old World Christmas
Introduced 2010

Bird ornament made of mouth blown, hand painted glass. Measures approximately 5 1/2" with tail feathers.

Birds are symbols of happiness and joy, and so they are regarded as a necessity on the Christmas Tree. Glassblowers often kept wild birds during the winter months since the sound of the gas flame in the workshop prompted the birds to sing. Then when spring arrived, the birds returned to freedom.
