Vintage Christmas by Krebs Frosted Glass Ornaments - Pastel Shades - Set of 12
A family holiday tradition since the 1940s...
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.
These Christmas by Krebs glass ornaments were made in the 1980s and 1990s. They are a mix and match batch of 12 containing pastel colors, frosted glass, and some golden sparkle. Each one features oxidation marks for a lovely authentic vintage aesthetic that can only be achieved by the passage of time.
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.
