Description

The hand-decorated Pastorello and Pecorello Christmas Baubles made of mouth-blown glass are part of the Palle Presepe collection (Italian: Nativity Scene Christmas Bauble) by A di Alessi. They it represent figures which enact the Nativity Scene right next to the Christmas tree.

"Pastorello" is the Italian word for "shepherd", "Pecorello" means "little sheep". A di Alessi explores the Christian symbolism of a Christmas nativity play in a tender and elaborate manner and brings it to life in two charming Christmas baubles.

The tradition of decorating Christmas trees with large and small colouredChristmas baubles of blown glass dates back to the middle of the 19th century, when a particularly dry year in the Vosges deprived the pine trees of their green needles. A glassblower from Goetzenbruck came up with the idea to blow many tiny glass objects and hang them up to counterbalance the sad sight of the bare branches. The shape of the Christmas decorations manufactured in the old traditional way changed along the years, with additional small decors or motives typical for the Christmas time like Father Christmas, bells, stars and sledges, being added.

Later, it was Marcello Jori, whose creative mind and irony created the “Palle Presepe”, triggering a small revolution for Alessi. He says that there was a Christmas tree at his home every year, but that he envied those who put up cribs with figures that appeared so much more vivid than the decorative elements on the tree. The designer says: ”And one night I had a dream of an angel who attached some new baubles to the Christmas tree, of a kind I had never seen before. The baubles spoke, sang and prayed. Some of them were the Saints, stars or animals and one of them, shining more brightly than others, was the Infant Jesus.”

Jori’s dream came true. Today, hand-decorated baubles of mouth-blown glass have become reality. Apart from the shepherd and his sheep, there are many other motifs adapted from the Christian nativity story to be found in the Christmas bauble collection by A di Alessi.

Great balls from Alessi, - as always with a twist. Super nice for everyone who doesn't like the standard so much.

I love Alessi's Christmas baubles - and soon I'll have them all together. I was a little disappointed that these two bullets are so much smaller than the others. But now I have understood: the sets contain the small balls and the single balls are the big ones. Perhaps one could have made clearer in the description...

Charming team

Very valuable and in contrast to the royal colleagues somewhat smaller. Charming, though. And in the "Sale" the actually quite high price was also acceptable.
