"Bountiful Santa" was designed by artist and Old World Christmas co-owner E.M. Merck. It was available only at special Old World Christmas Events during the 1998 Holiday Season. It is a limited edition piece; produced specifically for 1998. Only 18,000 of these collectibles were created.
Made in Germany for Old World Christmas by the skilled artisans of Inge-Glas. This festive collectible made of glass was carefully mouth blown, one at a time, into a finely crafted porcelain mold. After the inside was coated with a wash of silver for reflection, it was then hand-painted with brightly colored lacquers. It took approximately seven days to create each one of these ornaments.
