Ornaments for the Holidays


According webster the definition of Christmas ornaments+ a small ball, figurine, etc., that is hung on a Christmas tree for decoration

Glass ball ornaments are a classic Christmas tree tradition. Many people, including myself, still decorate their trees with these beautiful ornaments,

Christmas ornaments are usually made of blown glass, metal, wood, blown plastics, shattered proof or ceramics. German immigrants brought this practice to America in the 18th and 19th centuries, where it was promptly rejected by Puritanical religious groups for its historically pagan connotations. While it took a while to catch on, small communities of German-born settlers documented the continuation of this practice as early as the mid-1700s.

Glass ornaments

Glass baubles were first made in Lauscha, Germany, and also garlands of glass beads and tin figures that could be hung on trees. The popularity of these decorations grew into the production of glass figures made by highly skilled artisans with clay molds. Germany had the market on glass ornaments until 1925, then came Japan. Czechoslovakia, and Poland entered the marketplace in the 1920’s where they would have blown glass ornaments. Ornaments finally made their way into the US in 1973 by Hallmark as they started manufacturing keepsake ornaments.

In comes Christopher Radko from Poland. Christopher’s start was not typical in starting a business. When a Christmas tree fell and startled the Radko family. With over 1,000 vintage mouth-blown glass ornaments broken to bits, Christopher was distraught. Searching endlessly to replace them, he found nothing quite good enough to replace his treasured memories. He soon realized that the only option was to start from scratch. Thus began the creation of Christopher Radko Ornaments. With nothing but his Christmas memories to build upon, Christopher enlisted a Polish glassblower and went to work recreating his family’s lost heirlooms.
