This personalised English bone china bauble featuring the new Christmas Floral Wreath design has been inspired by Susan’s love of winter flowers and decorations.
The term “wreath” is commonly used to describe an assortment of leaves, twigs, flowers and fruits that form a ring and the association of the wreath with Christmas dates back to the 16th century, when the Lutherans in Germany started to use it as a symbol of Advent. The Advent wreath has a circular shape to represent God with no beginning and no end.
A wreath is traditionally a symbol of eternity and, in modern times, a wreath is a symbol of everlasting life and growth that is commonly associated with the Christmas holiday season. it is traditionally made from evergreen plants and Susan’s new design for this floral wreath features evergreens with Holly, Holly Berries and Ivy together with Christmas Roses and Mistletoe.
Throughout history, however, the wreath has been used as a symbol with numerous other meanings.
Ancient Etruscans used wreaths made from gold or other precious metals as a symbol of power. Etruscan rulers wore wreaths as crowns, and the power symbolism of the wreath continued in the Greco-Roman antiquity. In Ancient Greece, the wreath was also an important symbol of fertility, with the harvest wreath being a sacred amulet for farmers and their families.

Each of our new baubles features this new wreath on one side whilst on the reverse, there is a traditional circlet of the wreath where the recipient’s name may be added to the centre.
Each bauble is finished with a hand-painted metallic gold top and comes ready to hang on the tree with a U.K. made ribbon tie in red.
These traditional tree decorations are hand-made and hand-decorated by one of our skilled china makers in the Longton district of Stoke-on-Trent – a region that has a long tradition of bone china production. We at Susan Rose China are proud to support British manufacturing at its finest.
We are also offering several other personalised Christmas Tree Decorations this year including our new Teddy Bear design – perfect for all those who revere this long-lasting toy.
