This 1950s West Germany silvered glass Christmas ornament is shown in one of my books titled "Angel in a Hoop Skirt". She's 4-3/4 inches high, with the distinctive early 50s German flesh painted face and hands, which are clasped under her chin in prayer. The yellow-haired angel wears a blue full dress and pink pinafore, and has long, full, closed light blue wings at the back dusted in mica glitter.
The ornament is in excellent condition for its age and type. There is typical light crackling (crazing) to the blue paint, which is very common. There are no chips or breaks. The original 1950s FW Woolworth price sticker is still on the bottom of the ornament.
