Inside this book:
Patricia Breen ornament collectors will recognize the author's name. Bob Merck owns the Historical Christmas Barn in Connecticut, a longtime Patricia Breen retailer. Bob's brother, Tim Merck, owns Old World Christmas, a major glass ornament manufacturer. One can almost picture what Christmases in the Merck household must have been like!
Antique ornament collectors will recognize Merck as a long time member of the Golden Glow of Christmas Past, an international Christmas collectors' organization. Deck the Halls illustrates pieces from Merck's renowned collection -- German belsnickles, candy containers, rare German figural ornaments, kugels, Dresdens and chromolithograph paper decorations. In fact, there are over 350 full color illustrations, including the author's massive Christmas tree, laden with precious antique ornaments.
