History of ornaments

Hans Greiner, a direct descendant from Lauscha, Germany, created hand-blown glass ornaments out of necessity. In the 16th century, Germans would decorate their trees with real fruit, nuts, and tinsel. Unfortunately, not everyone could afford use these due to the limited life of perishable items. Greiner began manufacturing glass ornaments representing the fruits and nuts for longevity and practicality. His “baubles” became so popular, the glass tree ornaments spread worldwide into the tradition we practice today.
