Beautiful late Victorian era (circa 1890s) blown glass swan Christmas ornament in a cradle of looped gold tinsel garland. The bird is fairly large, almost 5 inches long by 3 inches high. The red and white original paint is worn as shown, and most of the inner mercury silvering has deteriorated due to age and air exposure. Including the tinsel, the ornament is 5-1/4 inches long.
