Christmas Tree Ornament

 

Dear Customers, 

Each year I carve the original design for Overboard Art’s Christmas Tree Ornament Collection. The idea started in 1990 when my wife, Victoria Moo, wanted me to do an ornament for our Christmas tree. Employees at Overboard Art liked the results and asked for one of their own. Before long I was in full production. Taking the ornament to the Easton Waterfowl Festival that year, proved to be an instant hit.

My goal has been to do Christmas ornaments of all the waterfowl, (ducks, geese, and swans) of North America of which there are over 40 species. Fearing I wouldn't be able to complete this goal, I released two per year the last couple of years. However, I found that it was too much and so we are now back to just one per year.

The collection is a Price Limited Edition, meaning that once the current piece is issued,  all pieces from previous years go up $1.00. Over time, the value of the collection will, by itself,  limit the number produced.  In this way the price will limit the size of the collection and protect the collectable value for our annual repeat customers.

To date there are 136 complete collections in existence. 

It seems the number decreases our old faithful customers depart for the source of it all. 

This year I made the 2018 ornament, so we are making the 2017 and 2018 both available at $25 each. 

The ornament comes in a soft drawstring cloth bag and is packed in a white gift box. I am personally painting all these pieces and signing them.They are American made at our Maryland studio. You are getting every bit a hand-made work of art, as we like to think of them. 



Let us be the first to wish you and yours all the Blessing of the Christmas season to come and a New Year filled with happiness.


Don and Victoria Moo Briddell
