This is a vintage mercury glass Christmas ornament, possibly early 20th century. The ornament depicts a snowman wearing a black pointed hat, black buttons, and holding a small wooden broom. The body of the snowman is coated in a white crystalline sand, giving it a snowy effect. It's face is a metallic silver with a bright red smile and small black eyes. The tip of the hat is connected to a brass cap and metal ring for hanging. The ornament is in excellent, age appropriate condition, with some wear to the finish. It measures approximately 3.25" tall, 1.25" wide, and 1" deep.
