This antique Circa 1870-1890 ornament is a hand blown and decorated German glass ornament. It is a scarce wire, die cut, and hand blown glass hot air balloon ornament. The classic wire covers the blown glass ornament which is a deep gorgeous green with a period cherub with a bouquet. It is in very fine original condition as pictured, truly charming and lovely. The ornament measures 4" high.
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.
