Most of my particular favorite Yuletime ornaments are made of European glass.  But the styles of the glass Christmas time ornaments vary.  Some of the glass ornaments are frosted glass, while others are shiny and translucent.  I really love the hand blown glass ball ornaments.  The colors in blown glass are just sparkling and vibrant.

However, there are also some very interesting molded glass ornaments in various shapes of animals, and Christmas symbols.  Some have glass inside of other glass.

Glass Christmas Ornament History

haveyourselfvintagechristmas 300x300 Buy Vintage Antique Christmas Ornaments OnlineOriginally Christmas trees were decorated with fruit, popcorn, and candy canes. The first Christmas ornaments were called glass baubles, and they were first made in Lauscha, Germany by Hans Greiner in the 19th century. Greiner made garlands of glass beads similar to other garlands strung on trees at the time.

Featured: Have Yourself a Very Vintage Christmas: Crafts, Decorating Tips, and Recipes, 1920s-1960s Buy Vintage Antique Christmas Ornaments Online

Other glassblowers in Lauscha recognised the growing popularity of Christmas baubles and began producing them in a wide range of designs.

In the 1840's, after a picture of England's Queen Victoria's Christmas tree was shown in a London newspaper decorated with glass ornaments and baubles from her husband's native Germany, Lauscha began exporting its products throughout Europe.
