Old World Christmas Blown Glass Dreidal Ornament


The dreidel is a small four-sided spinning top with a Hebrew letter on each side: Nun (miracle), Gimel (great), Hay (happened) and Shin (there) which together form the acronym Nes Gadol Hayah Sham (a great miracle happened there). Families play dreidel for chocolate gelt during Hanukkah, based on an old legend from the time of the Maccabees: Jewish children weren’t allowed to study Torah, but they would anyway. When Greek soldiers would pass by, the kids would hide their books & just play with their spinning tops instead.

$9.99

Dimensions: 3.25 X 1.5 X 1.5

Each figurative glass ornament produced by Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800’s. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds made exclusively for Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
