An annual event, our Christmas items are only available from October through December.
German Christmas ornaments.
Every year October to December 31st, Ursel's Web Art gallery transforms into a German Christmas Shoppe.
The Holiday Exhibit begins with an open house evening of festive music, and a wine and cheese reception. On this night you can also meet our featured artist of the time, and learn first hand about their works.
Some of the items to be found in the Christmas Shoppe include Bavarian Pewter ornaments, wooden Nutcrackers and Smokemen from Germany, as well as candle Pyramids and hand-carved, wood ornaments. There is Mouth-blown, hand painted glass in abundance, many in the old-world style.
In addition to German items we also have glass ornaments and tree-toppers from Vienna, Poland and the Czec Republic.
Holiday, hand-woven decorative lace table runners, paper cut-out ornaments from Denmark and our ever popular Mushroom Birds are just some of the traditional favorites among our customers.
We send out Invitations to our customers every year for the Tannenbaum Shoppe opening reception.
If you wish to be added to our Mailing List, you may stop into the gallery, mail or emailus your address.
Smokemen are a holiday tradition in Germany.
Hand-carved & painted, these jolly figures are used to burn incense cones. Coming in two pieces, you lift off the top, placing a lit cone inside.
The smoke is then seen to exit as steam from a lady's bowl of piping hot dumplings, cup of tea, a street Tinker's pipe smoke, Santa's wintry breath or from the good-luck bringing, Chimney Sweep.
