Circa: 1930 Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Pre War German Import
This unusual and attractive German figural glass Christmas ornament isn't in any of my ID books that I can find. It's almost 5-1/4 inches high, a boy in winter clothing standing on a mica glitter ball of snow with flesh painted face and decal long-lashed eyes. The boy wears a scarf, red cap, and yellow boots. His jacket is green, his hands are in the pockets of his red pants. There is some flaking to the face paint as shown, otherwise the ornament is in very good condition with no chips or breaks. **UPDATE** I finally found the ornament in one of George Johnson's earlier Christmas ornament books titled Dutch Boy - I had originally called it Snow Boy.
