Embassy of the Czech Republic in Washington, D.C. -
Admission: Free and open to the public
Just in time for the holiday season, the European Trading Company returns to the Embassy for the second year to feature one of the largest collections of beautiful Czech handmade Christmas ornaments. Nadia and Vashek Cinadr will present the exhibition, as well as offer numerous ornaments for sale.
The ornaments come in all shapes and sizes. Colorful glass multicolored beads weave together to create a brilliant star. A spun glass Santa carries a sack full of toys, while soccer and golf objects adorn the sports lovers’ trees. A pink half moon hangs from the newborn baby’s tree, and brightly colored birds with feathers adorn a more eclectic collector’s tree. Gold embellishments clothe in spiral patterns a radiant red ornament, while a formal black and sparkling gold ornament painted with embroidery also catches the eye. The ornaments offer humor, beauty, and surprises. Each hand-crafted stunning decoration reveals the intricate craftsmanship of Czech artisans.
