Glass Christmas ornament. Santa on the tower of British Parliament known as Big Ben. The tower on the north end of the British parliament with four clocks at it top has gotten its name for the big bell of the big tower over the clocks.   The tower was designed in 1859 and at the time its clock was the largest and most accurate in the world, measuring 23 feet.  The tower is most spectacular at night when the clock is illuminated. Our adorable Santa is scaling Big Ben, dressed in traditional Santa red he is climbing the big tower. a wonderful ornament for any Anglophile and a great souvenir for anyone who ever visited London.

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.
