SHIMMERING GLASS ORNAMENTS
At the holidays, the world sparkles and shines, dressed in satin ribbon and cascades of gaily-colored lights. Most captivating of all, the glass ornaments twinkling on the tree— none more enchanting than our mouth-blown glass ornaments from Germany and Poland. Truly the work of highly skilled artisans, the figure or form of the ornament is first sketched, then carved in wood to create a mold and finally, worked by the glassblower until the molten glass is ready for the mold. When cool, decorative touches are added, retaining handcraft techniques from start to finish. Discover our exclusive collection of uniquely beautiful glass ornaments for your holiday tree.

At Gump’s, we love nutcrackers for the magical touch they bring to holiday décor. The original production of nutcrackers began in Germany in the 15th century and they soon became popular as children’s toys and family keepsakes. According to tradition, the nutcracker is a token of goodwill, a talisman to protect hearth and home. Certainly a fascinating folkloric figure, Gump’s nutcracker collection includes heirloom quality, hand carved pieces from the venerable Steinbach company, Christian Ulbricht and the famed Rascher woodshop in Bavaria. Rich with precisely crafted details and Old World charm, these collectibles are a delight to own or to give. Shop the Collection.
