This authentic light gold kugel glass Christmas ornament was made in Germany in the late 1800s. It measures a little over 2-3/8 inches diameter and is 7-5/8 inches in circumference.
Kugels are colored within the glass, the yellow-gold finish isn't painted on. It's highly reflective but does have a little speckling from age degradation of the inner silvering. The effect is enhanced in the photos due to lighting conditions. There are a few typical small bubbles in the glass, the most prominent is visible in the last picture. The 8-lobe embossed brass cap slides a bit when pushed but is secure.
