From David Strand Designs’ Italian Collection : “Tannenbaum”, #DSD0907701. Produced in Italy in 2009. An elegant Italian globe ornament from David Strand Designs. Tannenbaum was inspired by the Christmas Carol “O Tannenbaum”. Written by Ernst Anschutz in 1824, it was based on a traditional German folk song from the 16th century. Although the lyrics do not refer to Christmas or a decorated tree, by the 20th century it became widely associated with Christmas. The song has been adapted in many forms and by many people over the years, notably by American jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi as an instrumental for A Charlie Brown Christmas. This exquisite ornament pays tribute to the song through its elegant form and decoration. It features a dramatically-shaped globe, with the lower portion flaring down to a fluted point and painted with rich red and gold lacquers. The upper portion of the globe is clear glass with a sophisticated white glitter starburst and a scattering of fine white dots suggestive of falling snow. The centerpiece of the ornament is a small evergreen tree resting on a bed of the same fine white glitter. The tree is decorated with miniature red and gold ball ornaments and topped with a red ribbon bow. Colorful wrapped packages surround the base of the tree. The use of globes in ornament production is an Italian tradition. The globe highlights what’s inside it and creates an interior space at which the viewer is encouraged to look. Tannenbaum is a complex piece and required the skills of an extremely talented glassblower. It was hand-painted and hand-glittered by a talented team of decorators who incorporated an imaginative mix of accessories to complete the piece. The use of decorative elements beyond lacquer and glitter is unique to Italian workshops. This spectacular ornament is a testament to the talented artisans who produced it. Tannenbaum references a symbol of Christmas known the world over, yet with a strikingly original form and vivid decoration. It’s new, has never been displayed and comes with attached hangtag.
