Wonderful large vintage mercury glass ball shape Christmas ornament measuring 3-1/2" in size. Featuring a charming hand painted image of Santa Clause holding a candy cane on one side and a sprinkling of glitter stars on the reverse. Original metal cap is marked MADE ITALY. Condition is lovely with no chips, cracks, hairlines, repairs or damage - a hint of darkening at the pike top does not detract. Color is a rich, creamy champagne and Santa's face is so sweet. Wonderful addition to any Christmas tree or holiday display!
