Using the original 1880s molds invented by Gustav A. Mayer, William and Janet Rigby work in their Cooperstown, NY studio to hand-fashion each Zinn Brilliant ornament from tin and meticulously embellish them with accents of glass beads and historically accurate colors.

Every Zinn Brilliant ornament is a distinct work of art that transforms the darkness of winter into the dancing light of the holiday season.
