This 3 inch high silvered German glass oak leaf ornament has a well defined Father Christmas style Santa Claus figure embossed in high relief on the front. The ornament has some pink gel tinting at the lower end and sides - it may have been made that way, though it's more likely that the rest of the color has faded or worn away over the years. The back has some pale green and yellow tinting at the upper leaves.
The silvering is still very reflective with good interior coverage except near the pike where it has started the normal and inevitable process of degradation. No chips or breaks. This ornament is listed in a popular price guide as being American but that is an error - it's definitely pre-war German and has its original Made in Germany paper label on the back as proof.
