This very old Japan feather tree Christmas ornament has an unusual barrel shape, and an uncommon turquoise blue color. The ornament is about 1-5/8" high with very detailed molding, including the barrel bands, staves, and a 5-point star-in-circle emblem on two sides. The original mercury silvering has suffered natural and inevitable deterioration, leaving behind an almost transparent pretty blue ornament. The coloring is actually within the glass, not sprayed or painted on. The tin cap is flat with a wired-attached ring, similar to a kugel.
