State of Michigan Ornament
This state map-shaped ornament represents Michigan with blue areas for the Great Lakes. The design includes the Mackinac Bridge, a Model T, cherries, and a red star with the state capital, Lansing, in black print.
The back includes White Shoal Lighthouse, a sailboat, a record album and a gold music note for Motown Records in Detroit. This ornament makes a great gift to remember a vacation to Michigan or to remind someone of home.
This ornament was hand-crafted, using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds, then a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornament is then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps.
