Vintage White Christmas by Krebs Glass Ornaments with Silver Glitter Fleur de Lis - Set of 4
I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present and the Future. The spirits of all three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach. Charles Dickens
Originally, founded in Bavaria in the 1940s by the Krebs family, the Christmas by Krebs brand has been making exquisite ornaments for over 60 years. Sought after around the world, they opened an American plant in Roswell, New Mexico in the early 1970s and have been defining the holiday spirit for millions of Americans around the country ever since.
This set of four Christmas by Krebs glass ornaments was made in the 1980s. They feature shiny milk-white balls with gold flourishes and silver glitter fleur de lis. Silvery grey oxidation marks add an extra layer of authentic aged patina and an overall gorgeous aesthetic of past holiday celebrations.
There is something very wonderful about decorating your Christmas tree, garlands or mantelpieces with traditional glass ornaments. So many modern-day ornaments are made of plastic - a much more practical material - but vintage glass adds an air of delicate charm to your decorating that mirrors the fragility of life and the care that has been taken to protect such important family memories for decades.
