This 1950s West Germany glass Christmas ornament is a passenger car or automobile painted red and blue over silver. The shape resembles a Volkswagen Bug or Beetle and is therefore sometimes called a VW ornament by collectors, though in actuality it resembles a lot of 1930s and early 1940s era automobiles - the mold was first used in Germany in the 1930s.
The ornament is 3 inches long and in excellent condition, shiny with no silvering loss or damage. The metal cap is marked West Germany.
