The most magnificent of all the Tudors – King Henry VIII was king of England from 1509 to 1547. Henry VIII is one of England’s most famous kings, mainly due to his six wives and his cruel behavior towards them. This Henry VIII glass tree decoration has been blown by mouth from glass and is beautifully hand decorated with a thin layer of silver plate added to the inside. This traditional process has been unchanged for more than 100 years and the handcrafted nature of this Christmas ornament makes each decoration truly unique. Presented in a box, the Henry VIII tree decoration would make a lovely and unique gift for lovers of the Tudor period. £22.99
