- Legend: "At that time, during the cold winter months in Germany, glassblowers often kept birds in cages to offer them shelter and to enjoy the melodies. These birds gave craftsmen companionship and inspiration for creating new ornament moulds. The glass-blower family Mueller-Blech was always known for the production of glass birds. . . . .Birds are symbols for joy and happiness. They are said to be messengers from God and the embodiment of souls."
The five-point star crown is recognizable worldwide as the symbol of authentic Inge-glas craftsmanship. The ornaments are mouthblown and handpainted in the Inge-Glas workshop in Neustadt, Germany. Every ornament is still today exclusively mouthblown and hand-painted, piece by piece in limited quantities.
