Old World Christmas

The Merck Family’s Old World Christmas was founded by Tim and Beth Merck, a couple who shared a special love for Christmas, especially its rich traditions in the European style. The Mercks are credited with revitalizing the art of mouth-blown fine glass ornaments as a result of

their reintroducing figural designs to the United States in 1979. Today, The Merck Family’s Old World Christmas is one of the leading distributors of the world’s most extensive and best-loved collections of mouth-blown figural glass ornaments, vintage style night lights and nostalgic greeting cards.
