Wonderful antique thin blown mercury glass Christmas ornament measuring about 3" in size. Featuring a oblong, lantern painted in alternating cream and white, each panel is stamped with a different design, separated by beaded edges as shown. Unmarked, ornament was made in Germany, dating turn of last century. Condition is very good with no chips, cracks, hairlines, repairs, or damage - there is overall mercury glass loss to the interior, paint shrinkage and a tiny chip on the pike underneath one side of the cap - does not detract a bit. Just love this lantern - color is perfect - soft and so sweet - wonderful addition to any holiday Christmas tree or collection!
