When you give a Green and Purple Ornaments Visa Gift Card you honor a Christmas decorating tradition more than 165 years old. German glass blowers first made blown glass balls in the 1840s, and the process today is still very similar. They blow a glass ball, coat it with silvering on the inside to give it a mirror-like shine, then dip it in lacquer to add color on the outside. These ornaments have earned their stripes with fine sandy granules glued to their surfaces. Celebrate the season and the tradition of blown glass ornaments with Green and Purple Ornaments Visa Gift Cards.
