This porcelain tree ornament recalls old world charm in a modern design. A keepsake ornament with Dutch heritage to keep or to give.


Designed after the seventeenth-century canal houses of the Dutch Golden Age, this modern form represents a sense of homeland in the tall row houses of Holland still standing today as they did in early art and photography, when they hosted Dutch artists such as Rembrandt van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer and Paulus Potter. Form and texture arch and bend the shadows around this pure white porcelain house, which is suspended by a metal pin and beautifully curved hanger. Each ornament is personally inscribed, "POAST 2012."

This purchase includes one (1) Amsterdam architectural ornament. House measures approximately 5.7 cm (2 1/4 inches) tall. Color: white.
