This ornament recalls Northwest Airlines that began operations in 1926 from its home base in Minnesota, and following World War II expanded to key markets in Asia, connecting North America with the Northern Pacific Rim.

 Steady expansion in North America during the 1950s-70s, and to Europe in the early 1980s, made the airline - which branded itself as "Northwest Orient" - a major U.S. flag carrier. The airline's 1986 acquisition of Republic Airlines made Northwest one of the largest airlines in the world, until its acquisition by Delta Air Lines in 2008.

An artistic interpretation of the airline's brand is laser-engraved with exacting detail onto a cut acrylic snowflake crystal ornament, measuring approximately 3.4 inches (8.6 cm) between opposite points, with a material thickness of 1/8 inch. For best display clarity, the design is engraved as a reversed mirror image on one side of the ornament, so that it can be viewed with proper alignment on the opposite side.

As a gift, or as a treat for yourself, these are a perfect way to add your favorite airlines of the past to your today! Use them to decorate for the holidays, or to brighten up your desk, office, or special area of your home or work space all year long.
