Christmas tree ornaments mouth blown cucumber
The cucumber in the tree
In the U.S., the "Christmas Pickle" has long been a tradition - although in turn many U.S. citizens are said to be convinced that the custom originated in Germany. After all, we are united in the playful competition for the Christmas cucumber: Whoever discovers it first in the decorated Christmas tree receives a special little present. But why a cucumber of all things? Well, it is unusual enough to be "discovered" as a unique piece in the midst of the classic tree decorations, and at the same time, thanks to its color, it is predestined to be hidden in the coniferous greenery. And whether now new or revived custom: joy it spreads in any case.

By hand, the hand-blown into the mold glass jewelry in Liebig's silver plating process is mirrored inside to achieve a high radiance (silver reflects incident light particularly well), and after drying dipped in glass varnish to evoke the outer color shine. Finally, put on the stylish little metal hat for the hanger, and the Christmas cucumber is ready to shine in your tree - almost too bad to hide it ...
