The custom of having a fir tree in the living room on Christmas came to Denmark in 1808, when the first tree was lit by Count family on Holsteinborg Castle in southern Zealand. Like most other practices also came this to us from Germany, where you also imported the first Christmas tree ornaments of glass in the late 1800s.

Thor hammer that you see in the picture, are made - then as now - by skilled glass artisans in Bohemia and southern Germany and by the same old craftsmanship with which 100 years ago. That is, the glass is blown through the mouth, and then silvered with a thin layer of silver on the inside. Then decorate the outside of the figure in hand with colour and glitter and packed, - also by hand.

Thor hammer comes in a very nice and strong cardboard box in matt black with polished silver decoration with a transparent cover in heavy plastic, so you can see the Christmas decorations.

Ideal as a Christmas gift, as a gift for the host or hostess of a dinner party, or as a corporate gift...
