Christmas In July at Silver Superstore!

It’s Christmas In July At Silver Superstore!

It’s an exceptionally hot summer, but one way to beat the heat is to look forward to Christmas. The idea of gently falling snow and glistening icicles has never seemed so appealing.

If you collect or make gifts of annually issued Christmas ornaments, it’s never too early to snatch up the new editions. The unique heirlooms start selling out before many collectors finish their Thanksgiving leftovers. Too, you should factor in time for custom engraving and shipping. Engraving makes any keepsake more personal.

We offer an impressive collection of finely crafted ornaments made by the world’s most respected silversmiths. Here are three popular designs, all made right here in the U.S., that are sure to delight year after year.

Wallace Sleigh Bell

2018 Wallace Sleigh Bell

A 16-year-old spoon-maker named Robert Wallace set up shop in the early 1800s. Wallace first issued its whimsical sleigh bell, which is often the top-selling ornament, in 1971.

As always, the three-dimensional motif circles the center of the round bell and frames the year. The 2018 Wallace Sleigh Bell features both holly and Santa Claus. The 2 3/4-inch silver-plated bell has a light, merry ring. The Wallace mark is stamped on the bottom.

We also offer the 24th-edition sterling silver version. The bells look as pretty collected in a bowl as they do dangling from a Christmas tree.

Each ornament comes with both red and white ribbons for hanging, a protective pouch, a gift box and a brochure. Because of their dainty size, we recommend limiting engraved messages to one line.

A Brief History Of The Wallace Candy Cane

A History Of The Wallace Candy Cane

The 2019 Wallace Candy Cane is just one of the many classic ornaments that we offer at Silver Superstore. This piece has been released annually for decades, but where did it get its start?

A Brief History Of The Candy Cane

Wallace Candy Cane 2019

If a legend dating to 1670 is to be believed, the first candy cane was the brainchild of a German church choirmaster. Hoping to keep the little ones quiet during a reenactment of the Nativity, he asked a local confectioner to make what he described as “sugar sticks” for them.To justify doling out treats in church, the choirmaster suggested adding a crook at the top; with any luck, that would inspire the children to reflect on the humble shepherds in the scene.

This lovely story may have some basis in truth, but the first stick candies didn’t debut until confectioners competed for prizes at an exhibition in Massachusetts in 1837. The earliest recipe for a straight peppermint candy stick was published in 1844, and there’s mention made of a candy cane in an 1866 literary work. Candy canes as we now know them didn’t show up on Christmas trees until the early 1880s.

They’re still showing up today.
