Glass baubles were invented in Germany to look similar to the popcorn strings and had tin figures on them. These glass ornaments were so popular that others started making them. Highly skilled artisans started to make beautiful Christmas ornaments in the shape of fruits and nuts. While the glass was cooling silver nitrate was poured inside to give the ornaments a silver look. After it was thoroughly cooled the ornaments were hand painted and a top with a hook added so that it could be attached to the tree.

Glass blowers all over Germany started to make these beautiful Christmas Ornaments and after a picture of Queen Victoria's Christmas tree decorated with these ornaments appeared in the London newspaper they started to be in demand all over Europe.
The United States didn't get them until the 1880's when F.W. Woolworth saw them in Germany and had them exported to his stores. He made a fortune selling them.
