This bizarre looking Mid Century silvered red glass Christmas ornament was made in Italy. It looks like a space alien to me. Or possibly the artist who decorated it had been experimenting with psychedelic drugs (smile).

About 5-3/4 inches high, the ornament has two distinct large and small ellipse shapes (flattened orbs) with an elongated cone finial at the bottom. The upper ellipse is painted with five big jeweled and glittered eyes all the way around. At either side of the green rhinestone jewel "eyeballs" are asymmetric comma stroke lines of mica glitter, presumably representing eyelashes or whiskers. There is minor wear to the mica glitter, otherwise the ornament is in excellent condition with no damage. I very much doubt you'll ever find another ornament like this, it's surely one of a kind.
