Pickled Pink

If you haven't heard of the Old World tradition of the Christmas pickle, it's high time you did. Tuck the pickle in a hard to find spot on the tree and the first child to find it receives an extra gift and a year of good luck. Whether you like gherkins, sours, or dills, you're sure to enjoy some happy hunting Christmas morning. Each pickle is lamp-worked by glass artisans in the mountains of Arizona, designed by artist Bandhu Scott Dunham. Handmade in Prescott, Arizona.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

            This is an excellent product. You can find these cheaper elsewhere but they have the cheap metal cap on them like regular ball ornaments. This one is the real deal - very nice!! Buy two in case one breaks - it is worth it! They also make great gifts for families with children however, it is fun for adults to find.. It blends in SO well on a tree it is fun for all ages to find!
