Lauscha Glass

Lauscha, Germany (founded 1597), is home of the original glass Christmas Ornaments. Nestled deep in the heart of the Thuringia Forest, the “Green Heart of Germany“.

The first decorated trees where adorned with apples, candy canes and pastries in the shapes of stars, hearts and flowers.

Glass baubles were first made in Lauscha Germany by descendants of Hans Greiner (1550-1609) founder of Lauscha and its first glassworks (Glashütte).

The very first glass ornaments were created during hard times by a poor glass maker who could not afford to decorate his family’s tree with the traditional apples and nuts, so he resorted to what he had in abundance… glass!

Other glassblowers in Lauscha recognized the growing popularity of Christmas baubles and began producing them in a wide range of designs.

Soon the whole of Germany began buying Christmas glassware from Lauscha.

On Christmas Eve 1832, a young Victoria wrote about her delight at having a tree, hung with lights, ornaments, and presents placed around it.

In the 1840’s after a picture of Victoria’s Christmas tree was shown in a London newspaper decorated with glass ornaments and baubles from her husband Prince Albert’s native Germany. Lauscha began exporting its products throughout Europe.

In the 1880’s, American F.W. Woolworth discovered Lauscha’s baubles during a visit to Germany.

He made a fortune by importing the German glass ornaments to the United States.
