Great Seal of the United States Christmas Ornament

Personalized Christmas Ornament


SKU: AC11001

The Great Seal of the United States has been used since 1782 and is our national coat of arms. This personalized coat of arms glass ball ornament has an eagle holding an olive branch in one talon and 13 arrows for the original states in the other. It means the U.S. has "a strong desire for peace, but will always be ready for war." The back side has a picture of the Amerian Flag.  What is so special about this glass ball ornament is that it is hand painted using a technique called the reverse painting process.  The images are painted from the inside of the glass leaving the outside smooth and free from paint chipping and fading.  When you see this beautiful ornament in person, you will appreciate the details of the craftsmanship.  Special gift to someone who is a member of a military branch or a veteran.

Dimensions: 3 1/4" diameter
Material: Glass Ball
NOTE: This is not a toy. It is not suitable for children to play with.

NOTE: We only bill to/ship to customers with a U.S. address and credit card.





Designate the Year

Putting the year on an ornament nicely commemorates your special gift.

If you want the year included, & there’s no box showing where we’d place it on the front of the ornament, use the drop down box and select the year. We’ll add it on the front if possible; otherwise we'll put it on the back


Now you can get this ornament gift wrapped with a personalized gift card attached! Or, if you just need to let that special someone know who the gift is from, choose the personalized gift card option!

We personalize your ornament just the way you request, so please carefully review your information. Once your order is placed, we are unable to cancel, change personalization, combine orders or make exchanges.

Ornaments shown on our site are personalized, as examples only, so you can see where we put the words/names you give us. Some ornaments allow you to select hair or uniform color. If there is no color choice, it is not available on that particular ornament. We will do everything possible to catch any mistakes in spelling, etc., but are not responsible if we do as you request, and it is then not correct. The ornament you see above is the way it will look when you get it, except for the personalizing instructions you give us and any optional attributes you select.
I am committed to delivering our customers the greatest selection of unique, personalized Christmas ornaments and gifts on the internet! We have over 5000 Christmas ornaments to choose from, each personalized with a name or special greeting from you!

I confirmed it and everything. These people went above and beyond to find the order and correct it for me. It may have even been personalized by the time I realized my mistake. With no extra charge or complaints,it was fixed and shipped. I will always go to OrnamentShop first when I am looking for something unique and special. Beverly P."
