Circa: 1890s Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Victorian Era German Production
Lovely antique 1800s Victorian Christmas ornament with a beautiful embossed German paper litho scrap angel or cherub in a canoe. The ornament is 4-1/2 inches long. The curly haired angel holds a draped flower swag and wears a yellow skirt with blue tied sash. The cardboard canoe backing is covered in textured brown crepe and outlined in skinny wired gold feather tinsel garland. The tinsel is loose at the center right edge but the old original glue still holds it in place elsewhere. The crepe finish has a little wear at the top and edges, nothing serious. The scrap angel is perfect with no tears or damage. There's a tiny hole at the top of the canoe for hanging.
