Since 1985, the Christopher Radko Company has been making high-quality reproductions and re-imaginations of traditional European glass Christmas ornaments. Employing artisans in Poland, Germany, and the Czech Republic, Radko designs range from bunches of grapes and others types of fruit to hundreds of different types of Santa Clauses. Unlike mass-produced ornaments, Radko's are hand-blown into custom molds, then hand painted in brightly colored lacquers.
