Christmas Tree Decorations and ornaments of the finest quality handmade in Seiffen and the German Erzgebirge. Also Easter decorations in season.

From Wonder in Wood "the German Christmas Shop" Echt Erzgebirge Holzkunst mit Herz (Genuine Erzgebirge woodcraft with Heart) Die Kunst Zum Leben. (The Art for Life)

Christmas tree ornaments and decorations light up the Christmas tree with their own special charm. The festive ornaments a tribute to the skilful wood turner.

The brilliance of miniature woodwork at its best,  along with the beautiful vibrant colours are a feature of the workmanship of the Christmas tree decorations.

Decorations for the Easter Tree are also available, Eggs, Chicks and Rabbits to name a few. Also, mainly in season, Spooky Decorations for Halloween you will discover too.

Traditionally, an ornamental pickle is placed on a Christmas tree as one of the Christmas decorations.

On Christmas morning, the first child to find the pickle on the tree would receive an extra present from Santa Claus or would be said to have a year of good fortune.

In fact, the tradition is largely unknown in Germany. It has been suggested that the origin of the Christmas pickle may have been developed for marketing purposes in the 1890s to coincide with the importation of glass Christmas tree decorations from Germany.

Woolworths was the first company to import these types of decorations into the United States in 1890.
