Piggy Bank Ornament
In medieval England, clay was called pygg, and the small jars where people kept their coins became known as pygg banks. One day a potter who was unfamiliar with the term, was asked to make some pygg banks, so he fashioned them to look like actual pigs!

Old World Christmas glass Christmas decorations are made using techniques that originated in the 1800s. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful results.
