This antique Christmas ornament forms a butterfly shape with gold wired feather tinsel framing five small mercury glass double pike ornaments or large garland beads in faded red, green, and gold. The smallest glass bead is itself wrapped in curly bullion wire. A gold crinkled tinsel tail or tassel hangs below the center. The ornament is about 4-1/2 inches wide by 7 inches long. Minor tarnish to the tinsel garland and some finish wear to the glass ornaments consistent with age.
