Circa: 1930 Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Pre War German, Czech Import
Four old musical instrument shape figural glass Christmas ornaments, two horns and two cello or guitar type stringed instruments. They were made in Germany or possibly Czechoslovakia in the 1930s or earlier. The oldest ornament is the large gold horn, 5-1/2 inches long. At nearly 100 years old, the horn does have some finish wear and rust marks on the back side but there are no chips or breaks.
The other horn is a tuba type, 3 inches high in tri-color red, silver, and dark green. It has some old snow flocking and some inner silvering loss at the center. The green cello is unsilvered with pink and white painted details. The 3-3/4 inch pink cello has some finish wear, mostly to the back. Though some of the backs show quite a bit of finish wear, they display nicely on a vintage decorated Christmas tree.
