The Celts and Germanic tribes worshiped the oak as a sacred tree. It stands for strength power endurance and immortality also the ability of prophecy.The fruit of the oak the acorns are a symbol for eternity and life energy for fertility and rebirth. An acorn contains only a tiny seed but a mighty oak tree will grow out of it just like the birth of a small child in a stable in Bethlehem was the beginning of Christianity. The place of origin of the glass ornaments is the area around Lauscha in Thuringia. In the beginning it was just a substitute for real fruit which a poor glass-blower could not afford. With time the diversity of glass ornaments for Christmas trees grew. Their popularity grew and they became a real bestseller.

Founded in 1900, Richard Mahr of Steinach, Germany created the finely detailed papier-mâché figurines that have since become internationally known and collected. Marolin figurines are hand composed using a combination of kaolin, chalk, paper fibers, organic paste, and clay before being hand poured and painted. These figurines, not unlike Vaillancourt’s Chalkware, are known for their artistic quality and detail.
