This antique Circa 1900-1920 ornament is a hand blown and decorated German glass ornament. It is beautifully hand painted and impressively large at approximately 7" long by 3.5-3.75" wide. The rayed intaglio centers show the hand blown individuality of this difficult design. The art glass ornament is mercury glass with a soft satin white detail accented with hand painted white lines. In fine condition, this late Victorian German art glass bulb is spectacular. Fragile elegance.
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.
