German Mercury Glass Angel Bubble Indent Christmas OrnamentGerman Mercury Glass Angel Bubble Indent Christmas OrnamentGerman Mercury Glass Angel Bubble Indent Christmas OrnamentGerman Mercury Glass Angel Bubble Indent Christmas Ornament

This unusual and rare 1930s or earlier German blown mercury glass indented Christmas ornament has a pale yellow blown glass bubble in the center, onto which is attached a little paper scrap angel or cherub face. The matte yellow coloring of the bubble or ball is softly reflected onto the silver back wall of the ornament. It measures 2-3/8 inches diameter and wrapped in curly bullion wire. The ornament has double pikes, one for the metal cap and one at the paneled center back used to create the inner bubble. There's a spot of mercury loss to the left of the bubble, otherwise the silvering is shiny and in good condition considering the age of the ornament. The wires have shifted some over the years, and the dark red paint along the rim outline has some wear.
