Spring Chicken Ornament. Made from mouth blown glass. Approximately 4 inches tall (10cm). Includes a FREE Old World Christmas storage box. Made by Old World Christmas. Each figural glass ornament is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800’s. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds available only to the Merk Family’s Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The origin of the Spring Chicken phrase is factual; farmers found chickens born in the spring brought better prices than old chickens that survived the winter. Chickens are vital to farm life; they lay eggs, produce fertilizer and eventually sacrifice their life. These animals help farm families survive..
