Circa: 1950 Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Mid Century West German Import
I found this 4 inch tall 1950s Madonna glass Christmas ornament listed in George Johnson's Pictorial Guide To Christmas book valued at $150 to $175 - same mold, same size, same type of metal cap, but the colors are different. The book ornament is silver with black hair and an almost white face. I think mine is more attractive with the flesh tone face and hands, pink gown, green robe, and gold hair. Even her fingernails are painted red. The ornament is in excellent condition with no damage and excellent paint coverage. The green looks a little washed out at the back of the ornament - I'm not sure if it's worn or just how it was made.
