And, yes, you heard right, Paul Revere, that famous night rider.

The Timeless Tradition of Holiday Snow Globes
The first snow globe was invented quite by accident. An Austrian scientist named Erwin Perzy was attempting to develop a powerful surgical lamp. Particles floating in a well-lit flask of water sparked his imagination. The snow-globe shop he opened with his brother in Vienna is still a bustling business today.
Snow globes fascinate people of all ages. They’ve been featured in numerous films. The title character of “Citizen Kane” was clutching a snow globe in the opening scene when he mysteriously whispered, “Rosebud.”
You may not need such a plot device, but we have a wide assortment of snow globes for giving as gifts or blending into your holiday décor. Remember to add an engravable silver tag to make your gift more personal and memorable.
Nativity by Reed & Barton – Express your faith with this lovely piece featuring Mary, Joseph and tiny Jesus in the manger. The silver plate base depicts the shepherds and wise men looking on from afar. The musical snow globe plays “O Little Town of Bethlehem.” It is 6 ½ inches tall.
It’s Christmas In July At Silver Superstore!
It’s an exceptionally hot summer, but one way to beat the heat is to look forward to Christmas. The idea of gently falling snow and glistening icicles has never seemed so appealing.
If you collect or make gifts of annually issued Christmas ornaments, it’s never too early to snatch up the new editions. The unique heirlooms start selling out before many collectors finish their Thanksgiving leftovers. Too, you should factor in time for custom engraving and shipping. Engraving makes any keepsake more personal.
We offer an impressive collection of finely crafted ornaments made by the world’s most respected silversmiths. Here are three popular designs, all made right here in the U.S., that are sure to delight year after year.
Wallace Sleigh Bell
A 16-year-old spoon-maker named Robert Wallace set up shop in the early 1800s. Wallace first issued its whimsical sleigh bell, which is often the top-selling ornament, in 1971.
As always, the three-dimensional motif circles the center of the round bell and frames the year. The 2018 Wallace Sleigh Bell features both holly and Santa Claus. The 2 3/4-inch silver-plated bell has a light, merry ring. The Wallace mark is stamped on the bottom.
We also offer the 24th-edition sterling silver version. The bells look as pretty collected in a bowl as they do dangling from a Christmas tree.
Each ornament comes with both red and white ribbons for hanging, a protective pouch, a gift box and a brochure. Because of their dainty size, we recommend limiting engraved messages to one line.
