Circa: 1890s Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Victorian Era German Import
This authentic silver kugel glass Christmas ornament was made in Germany in the late 1800s. It measures about 2-1/2 inches diameter and is 8 inches in circumference.
The silver coloring is mottled with fine sparkling due to natural age deterioration of the inner mercury silvering, the top third of the ornament has good mirroring. The uncommon solid brass 5 leaf with indents cap is tight and secure with no sliding. The finish looks worse in my photos than it does in real life.
