- Retired - While Quantities Last
Black Wild Big Cat Christmas Ornament, 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches, from the Merck Family's Old World Christmas Glass Ornaments collection. OWC # 12516. (2017 Mid-Year New Release)
This very detailed ornament depicts a black panther prowling over rocks for it's prey. It has a shiny surface to suggest the moonlight hitting it's coat. This species of animal is also called a black leopard in Asia and Africa or black jaguar in the America's (south of the United States) with some differences between the two. Note: Per Wikipedia, though some refute this finding, there is no such animal as a black cougar/mountain lion/puma, they are either mis-identified black jaguars or the lighting gave a black appearance. In any case this ornament is a wonderful addition to any big cats collection. It is made of blown glass, delicately hand-painted and has sparkling hand-glittered accents. (New 2017)
