This beautiful combination Christmas tree candle holder and blown glass ornament is nearly 4 inches high. At the top is an embossed brass clip-on candle holder with adjustable swivel head. Attached to the coiled spring below the candle clip is a blown glass ornament with indented center, 2 inches diameter.
Inside the recessed center is a puff of cotton and a tiny Dresden paper scrap image of a small child or baby. The silvered ornament is green with dots of silver glitter around the outer opening edge. The silver interior is ribbed, causing a white pie-crust reflection around the cotton. It creates an optical illusion of white paint surrounding the cotton. The ornament is in excellent condition, making it hard to date. It was either made in late 1930s Germany, or late 1940s Western Germany.
