Three antique Christmas ornaments from the early 1900s to 1910s, all made with wired gold feather tinsel. The largest is nearly 6 inches high by 3-1/2" wide and has a double pike indented glass teardrop ornament in the center. The bright blue ornament is unusual, two sides are indented and tinted pink, a third side has a thumbprint type recessed center. The fourth side is just the plain ornament with no embellishment or indent.
Next is a plain circle of tinsel roping with a one inch mercury glass bead at the bottom. The pink gel paint has considerable flaking. About 3-3/4 inches diameter. This was a common type of "home made" Christmas ornament during the Victorian era.
The last ornament is a 4-3/4 by 3-1/2 inches. Inside the wired tinsel garland drop shape is a six-sided dimensional guitar shape in heavy metal foil. A red lacquered berry is attached to the bottom. All three ornaments have some flattening or crushing of the tinsel fibers, otherwise they're in good condition for their 100-plus year age.
