The Meissen manufactory looks back on a long tradition of fashioning coveted collectable medals out of exquisite Meissen porcelain. When it comes to the design of these detailed reliefs, expert craftsmanship plays just as crucial a role as the selection of the decorative motif that is artfully captured and immortalised in each and every medal. For the "Merry Christmas" medal, MEISSEN draws inspiration from a traditional German symbol of the holiday - a candle set atop fir branches - to create a small good luck charm out of exquisite porcelain. The rear of the medal is adorned with a poinsettia and the words Frohe Weihnacht, German for "Merry Christmas", in a circle around the edge. A variety of colourful ribbons can be looped through the hole at the top of the medal so it can be hung as an ornament on your Christmas tree or holiday wreath.
