Circa: 1930s Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Pre War German Import
This 1930s German glass Christmas ornament is a blown glass sailboat shape, wrapped in crinkly gold wires. Attached to the center mast stem is a hollow hard plastic angel or little girl (no wings) figure. She has a mica glittered white dress and cap with her hands in a muff. Her face is nicely hand painted.
The red double pike indented teardrop ornament that forms the boat hole is 4 inches long. The ornament is almost 6 inches tall to the top of the clear glass mast tube. The original paper label reading Germany is still attached. The ornament displays fine but does have some minor issues. Some of the wires are loose and need to be repositioned around the boat section. There are scratches to the red paint as shown. The base of the mast tube has come unglued - the wires help hold it in place when adjusted but it should be glued in place for more stability.
