This lovely antique Germany double bulb balloon glass Christmas ornament is 5-1/2 inches high. It's unsilvered with an opaque flat off-white finish, and is wrapped in thin gold crinkled wire. An embossed scrap paper angel or cherub rider holding a flower garland is attached to the stem above a cloud of real cotton.
The ornament has no breaks or chips. The delicate paper angel has no tears or damage. There are a number of rubs to the white painted finish on the glass from the wires. The wire wrapping has shifted and I found two snapped wires. Dates to the 1920s or earlier.
