Circa: 1930 Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Pre War German Import
This vintage glass Christmas ornament is a Weinachtsmann or Christmas Man, who was a 19th Century German version of Saint Nicholas. The silvered ornament is fairly large, about 4-3/4 inches long by 2-1/4" wide. White mica glitter decorates the white painted cap fur, eyebrows, and mustache. Nicely embossed and detailed, it's in good condition with some finish wear and remnants of snow flocking to the red hat area. A shallow pike chip is visible at the back below the metal cap but the cap is secure and tight. This ornament is considered rare according to my identification and value books.
