A carrot and two pears antique German composition Christmas ornaments from Germany. They're less than 2 inches high with wire hangers at the tops and come with old steel shepherd's crook ornament hangers. The green and red pear and red carrot appear to be lacquered spun cotton or paper maché. Both have typical age crazing to the paint and are coated in a light sugar glitter glaze. The yellow and pink pear is more firm, possibly clay or plaster, and is completely covered in Venetian Dew (tiny clear bead glitter). All three ornaments are in very good condition for their age.
