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 very good condition with no silvering loss or noticeable finish wear. This ornament is considered rare according to my identification and value books.
