German Christmas markets, warm spiced wine (glühwein), German spice cookies (spekulatius)... how do you celebrate German heritage? This porcelain tree ornament recalls old world charm in a modern design. A keepsake ornament with German heritage to keep or to give.


Designed after the half-timbered houses (Fachwerkhäuser) of Germany, this pristine white form represents a sense of homeland in the timber-abounding small towns of Germany still unharmed by modernization. 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 2013."

This purchase includes one (1) German half-timbered architectural ornament. House measures approximately 3.8 cm (1 1/2 inches) tall. Color: white.

"It was hard to choose just one ornament so I got the set. The ornaments are too beautiful to be limited to Christmas and will be on display year round." - rmreynol
