Third Day of Christmas: Three French Hens
The Three French Hens is our third Christmas Ornament in the "12 Days of Christmas" ornament series. The yuletide Carol, which has been sung and enjoyed during the Christmas season for centuries, has inspired our Three French Hens ornament. It is believed the Three French Hens represent the expensive gifts brought by the wise men (gold, frankincense and myrrh). French hens were expensive and fit for the King's table - thus the three gifts.

Ornaments Made in the USA
All of our Christmas ornaments are made in the USA. The ornaments are handcast using our specialized centrifugal casting machine using vulcanized rubber molds. Our lead-free pewter is heated to a range of 500 - 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The pewter is then cast into the spinning mold carefully by hand. Once the pewter solidifies, the raw ornaments are taken out of the mold. The castings that are satisfactory to the watchful eye of the Pewtersmith are then deburred by hand. The ornaments are then put through our antiquing process. After drying completely, the Christmas ornaments are buffed by hand, removing just the right amount of the antiquing solution to create the beautifully detailed ornament. Finally, the ornaments are dusted, inspected, and packaged with our red elastic bow hangers.
