About Glas Bartholmes / “Thueringer Weihnacht” glassblowing factory

The glass Christmas tree decorations that my grandfather and great-grandfather made still determine the profile of our glassblowing factory today. Above all, elaborately handcrafted Christmas tree decorations, which are characterized by a great variety and splendor of color, document the craftsmanship of our family business. We have a large selection of old, traditional shapes that my grandfather used to produce Christmas tree decorations at our disposal. We can now incorporate the experience of 5 generations to produce our little treasures.

Lauscha has been the birthplace of glass Christmas tree decorations since 1848. Up until this point, it was traditional to decorate the tree with apples and walnuts. According to legend, the idea of ​​making colored glass baubles as Christmas tree decorations came from a poor Lauscha glassblower who could not afford the expensive walnuts and apples in 1847. Even today, the Thuringian Forest and especially the region around Lauscha is one of the most important glass regions in Central Europe.

When making glass Christmas tree decorations, the Bunsen burners were initially operated with rapeseed oil and paraffin. However, only a very hot gas flame with air or oxygen can be used to blow large, thin-walled Christmas tree balls. Today the burners are powered by natural gas or propane. The craftsmanship technique we use to make our hand-blown Christmas tree decorations is still the same.
