De Carlini's Mouth-Blown Skating Penguin Glass Christmas Ornament

Special Price $42.99 Regular Price $68.00
Continuing their practice established in 1947, the De Carlini family creates each skating penguin ornament from hand-blown glass. Few glass blowers have the talent and dexterity to form the shapes of this whimsical creature before the fiery glass cools. The glass artisans are joined by other artists who carefully hand-paint the bodies and adorable faces, adding glitter, fabric and other accents to bring this arctic character to life before packing each in a presentation gift box. Each skating penguin ornament of hand-blown glass measures approximately 7 inches tall. Handcrafted from the hearts and hands of artisans exclusively for Uno Alla Volta.

De Carlini Family

In a small village just outside Milan, Italy, a family workshop creates each ornament, uno alla volta, as they have been creating heirloom glass ornaments since 1947. Founders Enrico and Elisa passed the business down to their daughter Rosa, who continues the family tradition with her husband, son, and daughter-in-law. Each ornament is hand-blown from fiery glass, heated to over 1400°F, and then individually decorated.
