Radko Santa Tree

Forever Number 93-320-0

Page 114 of the First Decade Book

Made in Poland

12”

Santa Tree is one of the most coveted, sought-after, and intricate Radko ornaments of all time—prized by collectors since 1993. And it has an interesting back story, too.

This whopper-sized Polish ornament is blown from one piece of glass. First, the Santa on top is mold-blown. After that, the three tiers of the tree and the ball underneath is made using the free-blown technique. Only a highly-skilled glass blower had the skills to produce such a piece.

As the story goes, there was one such glass blower who made Santa Tree for Radko. But he had 'off' days. So the size and shape of the piece varied, depending on the day. He attempted to train others to blow Santa Tree, but the results varied. We think this Santa Tree was done on a very good day!

--- A double-sided Santa head rests upon a three-tiered red tree with gold glitter. A shiny green ball finishes out the bottom. Twelve inches tall.

Near mint condition. One tiny paint scratch on the bottom of the top tier of the tree (see photo).

From an Estate Christmas Collection

Disclosure: Many of the ornaments in this estate have been lovingly hung on the tree and have some patina. But considering their age, these pieces are in excellent, beautiful condition. They have been handled carefully, stored in climate controlled storage and come from a smoke-free home. We do our best to disclose any and all impurities.
