Vintage Christmas by Krebs Red Cardinal Glass Ornaments - Set of Three - Clear Glass
A family holiday tradition since the 1940s...
There is a long time superstition in the South that suggests that adding a red bird to your holiday tree will yield good luck in the coming year. We just love that idea here in the Vintage Kitchen! It doesn't have to be a plethora of red birds, one works just as well as many. Or in this case three.
This trio of Christmas by Krebs glass ornaments was made sometime around the 1970s. They feature a flutter of red birds among a golden tree landscape with a frosted lower third which creates a snow blanket around the base of the trees. So delicate!
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.
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.
