Circa: 1920s Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Pre War German Import
Three very unusual 1920s to 1930s textured glass Christmas ornaments, each with indented designs on two sides. The bumpy, beaded red and silver round ball has a green tinted recessed star indent front and back and is 2-3/4" high to the top of the metal cap by 2-1/4" wide.
The other red and silver round ornament is 2-1/4" high. The center indents are faceted star or flower shapes, tinted red. surrounded by two rows of silver diamond points, then thin red rings framing the outside of the ornament. The pike is chipped under the metal cap and there is a hairline crack to the glass on one side, invisibly repaired with clear nail polish so that it will not expand or break.
The bumpy, beaded silver bell is 2-3/4" high. A red 5-point star indent is incised on two sides. Still shiny and in very good condition, this ornament has an unmarked German metal cap. The metal caps on the other two ornaments are rusty and if marked, cannot be read but they are either of German or Czech origin.
