Circa: 1939 Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Pre War German Import
This late 1930s German blown glass Christmas ornament has a paper litho scrap angel or cherub holding rose bouquets standing in a cloud of cotton. She's attached to the long silver pike of the balloon ornament, the whole thing wrapped in crinkled or curly fine gauge gold wire. The 2-1/2 inch diameter ball is silvered inside with a wide turquoise blue center stripe, but it appears pearly white due to natural age deterioration of the inner mercury silvering. The ornament is 6-1/4 inches high and in very good condition with only one loose wire.
