This antique German blown silvered glass Christmas ornament is decorated in a technique known as End of Day, taken from the legend that Victorian glassblowers would creatively use up their remaining colors on the last few ornaments at the end of their shift. The teardrop shape ornament has opaque red, green, and blue marbled swirls over butter yellow. The colors are still wonderfully vivid and each side is a little different. There is some flaking to the finish consistent with age. The ornament is a little over 2-1/2 inches high with no breaks or chips.
