We'll always have Wiener schneekugeln

The originals, accept no substitutes (Bill Clinton and Barack Obama didn't, nor the makers of Citizen Kane);
My grandfathers invention of the Austrian Snowglobe has given much joy and delight to millions of people and now it is sought after by collectors all over the world. He proudly accepted a special award for his designs as a toymaker from Kaiser Franz Josef I.
Today, the tradition that my grandfather began is carried on from the same house in Vienna. Here, we produce the snowglobe completely by hand and like my grandfather`s creations, it makes no difference if we produce one or thousands of a style, each piece is as unique as a snowflake.
