Circa: 1920 Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Pre War German Import
An unusual 1920s or earlier miniature glass Christmas ornament, the perfect size for an antique feather tree at 1-1/2 inches wide. It's in the form of a wine casket or barrel with very detailed staves and bands, a cluster of grapes and leaves in the front center (or possibly flowers) and a knot hole or plug in the center back. The color is a light chartreuse yellow-green. There are a couple of small dark spots on the back where the inner mercury silvering has degraded, and a shallow chip at the pike visible under the metal cap which is marked Germany (the cap fits securely).
