Heritage Blown Glass Ornament
Honor Philadelphia heritage and decorate your Christmas tree with the memory of your visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This ornament features a design pulled from a stamped book in the Museum’s library. The Griffin was introduced in 1938, marking the moment the museum officially became the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Since classical antiquity, griffins were known for guarding treasures and priceless possessions. Perched atop the museum building, the griffins protect the art and our building by acting as lightning conductors!
