Christmas tree decoration made from porcelain

Made from porcelain

Christmas tree decorations made from porcelain? Not everyone has them, but they are particularly elegant. And even more elegant when they come from Augarten Wien, one of the oldest porcelain manufactories in Europe. Pine cones with gold touches, fragile stars, snowflakes, frost patterns and ice crystals made from porcelain give every Christmas tree an elegant finish.

The sweet hangings

Christmas tree hangings from Demel are actually much too good to nibble on. But nobody can resist the sweet temptations of the former imperial and royal court confectioner for long. Which is why the artistically decorated gingerbread stars, golden nuts filled with walnut marzipan, and the little parcels made from nougat will soon fly off the Christmas tree.

Christmas baubles made from glass

Mouth-blown Christmas tree baubles made from glass are a rarity. Robert Comploj produces them in his glassworks in the 7th district. The glassblower enjoy experimenting and is known for his fancy patterns and shapes. His Christmas tree baubles have fine ornamental patterns and radiate in special colors, from delicate pastel tones to gleaming prismatic shades.

Tin figures for the Christmas tree

In the Viennese miniatures workshop, Christmas decorations are made from tin. Or rather: cast. Dancing Christmas trees, Santas, elks, and snowmen are cast, artistically painted by hand, and then hung on the Christmas tree. The tin figures are available at many Christmas markets.
