The Tradition of Glass Baubles
Glass baubles first found their way into European culture in the middle of the 19th Century. The story goes that a poor glass blower from a small mountain village in Germany (Lauscha in Thuringia) couldn't afford the expensive walnuts and apples that traditionally decorated Christmas trees, so instead created glass tree decorations and strings of tin to adorn the tree. After that, glass baubles became hugely popular in Germany and spread through Britain with the tree itself after Prince Albert introduced some German Christmas traditions to our shores. Nowadays, glass baubles are part and parcel of decorating the Christmas tree, but designers no longer limit themselves to the classic spherical shape. Today, you can find baubles in any shape imaginable, for example the A di Alessi Nativity Baubles made of mouth-blown glass.
Christmas Tree Bauble Set
Each designer creates individual pieces and, even though every design is unique, they all come together on the Christmas tree. Every year, a new Georg Jensen Christmas ornament is released, perfect for collectors of gold Christmas tree decorations. Each one is designed in brass and plated with 24 carat gold, with exquisite detailing such as a delicate engraving of a golden mistletoe twig, which adorns a heart-shaped bauble. The A di Alessi nativity baubles also form a set: each piece is made of mouth-blown glass and represents a character from the nativity story. A beautiful Christmas bauble set like this brings your Christmas tree decorations together without making your tree monotonous.
