This antique Circa 1870-1290 ornament is a hand blown and hand decorated German glass ornament. It is the period classic type with crinkled wire and an angle period die cut. This type of German hand blown ornament is very scarce as they are very fragile. It is in very fine condition as pictured. This scarce German Victorian ornament measures 5" tall at the sail mast and 5" wide. It is truly exceptional.
This and the other ornaments we are offering come from a San Francisco lifetime major collection. The German glass ornaments were blown extremely thin walled and are very fragile, thus few remain. They were highly treasured at the time and passed down from generation to generation. This collection is quite spectacular and we are proud to offer it.
