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. This company reintroduced the art of mouth-blown fine glass ornaments in 1979, before other claimants to the honor. Their early ornaments are authentic reproductions and they introduced three highly collectible lines of Christmas lighting: Santa Light™, Candle Lights™ and Light Covers™.
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, nostalgic greeting cards and wooden nutcrackers and smokers. Their products are very affordable, which contributes to their popularity.
