Begging Dog With Basket 1970s Glass Christmas OrnamentBegging Dog With Basket 1970s Glass Christmas OrnamentBegging Dog With Basket 1970s Glass Christmas Ornament

The George Johnson book, Pictorial Guide to Christmas Ornaments, calls this silvered glass Christmas ornament "Begging Dog With a Basket". It's from 1970s West Germany and is 5 inches high, just like the one pictured in the book. I found the original German 1930s ornament from which this one was molded in Lightner's Christmas Rarities book, called "Begging Dog With a Purse in Its Mouth". Surprisingly, the original antique ornament books for $150 to $175, while Johnson values the 1970s remake higher at $175 to $200.

The dog is decorated in yellow-gold with red and green and a little white mica glitter trim. It's in excellent condition with no damage, paint wear, or silvering loss. The metal cap is marked West Germany.
