A wonderfully whimsical glass Christmas ornament, with deep carving of the large and growing baobabs that cover the whole of The Little Prince’s planet, above and under ground, and the dwarfed,  mortified Little Prince desperately trying to cut  off their thick roots, fighting a losing battle. The ornament is true to Antoine de Saint Exupery’s drawing in the book.

The daPolonia glass Christmas ornaments are designed and made in Mia’s studio in Krakow Poland. Steeped in centuries old traditions of glass ornaments making, drawing on the love of art and history, the ornament continues an old tradition of uncompromising quality and artistry.

The ornaments are fully made by Mia, and 100% hand made in the old fashion way. Starting with hand blown shapes and balls, hand silvering, coating with the base coat, and hand painting and glittering. The glitter we use is environmentally safe and is the same glitter used in cosmetics.  All the molds are proprietary created by our own mold maker. In the introduction to the ornament section you can see a video of how one of our ornament is made from scratch.
