This authentic silver kugel glass Christmas ornament was made in Germany in the late 1800s. It measures about 1-1/2 inches diameter and is just under 4-3/4 inches in circumference.
The silver coloring is nicely mirrored with no cloudiness. There are a few tiny, pinpoint spots to the inner mercury which are more noticeable in my photos due to the camera flash. The solid brass 5 leaf cap is tight and secure with no sliding. There are a couple of typical small scratches around the top from the wires used to secure the cap.
