The Nut – here as a walnut – is next to the glass ball one of the first forms of Christmas tree decorations. In a delicate shade of brown it bears traces of real glass mica which is applied by hand. A real iron cap is closing the upper end. A christmas decoration just as 100 years ago. 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.
