There is no more perfect body than the ball. Without beginning or end it is the symbol of perfection and completeness. Already for our forefathers the ball was a sign of the Divine. But the model for the Christmas ball was the apple. In the nobility class the apples werde gilded before fixing them on the tree.This ornament combines the ball shape and floral elements. 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. This hand made item comes to you safely packed and together with an MAROLIN certificate of authenticity.
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.
