This unusual and pretty 1950s West Germany glass diorama type Christmas ornament is from Germany. Inside the clear glass ball, mounted on the gold foil base, is a painted hard plastic angel holding a candle. She stands in a cloud of of curly angel hair and has lush wings of spun glass fibers.
The ornament is over 3 inches diameter and is wrapped in fine curly gold wire. The foil star bottom has a paper label reading Made in West Germany. Some of the wires have shifted and are a bit loose, otherwise excellent condition.
