An unusual 1920s or earlier miniature glass Christmas ornament, the perfect size for an antique feather tree at 1-1/2 inches wide. It's in the form of a wine casket or barrel with very detailed staves and bands, a cluster of grapes and leaves in the front center (or possibly flowers) and a knot hole or plug in the center back. The color is a light chartreuse yellow-green. There are a couple of small dark spots on the back where the inner mercury silvering has degraded, and a shallow chip at the pike visible under the metal cap which is marked Germany (the cap fits securely).
Specializing in antique and vintage Christmas all year round, plus antique to Mid-Century copper.
