2017 Holiday Ornament Raphael, palladium plated
Item Number10002882The design behind this yearas Christmas Collectibles came from the designer Alfredo HAberlis childhood Christmas traditions. aWhen I was a child a Christmas tradition was for my family to get together at our grandparentsa hotel. We had a fantastic time and coming from a Swiss-German family we always had a real fir tree although sometimes it felt a little strange in Argentina in the middle of summer without snow. We had many other traditions such as singing playing instruments decorating the tree and giving presents. I thought about which object represents Christmas for me: a star a glass bauble the three kings Santa Clause and an angela. aI looked at the concept and function of the collectible and I decided to focus on the angel. I created different sizes shapes and I made some decorative holes symbolizing snowflakes or starry skies. If you look carefully the angels are part of the Alfredo Collection. They have a twist which will hopefully make you smile and warm your heart. If this is your reaction then I have succeeded with its purpose!a - Alfredo HAberli. In addition to the traditional red ribbon the mobile comes with a special dark blue ribbon.
