A Time Remembered

Circa: 1999
Condition: Used
Manufacturer: Chase International/FIGI Graphics Inc./Made in China
This set of 3 hand painted Christmas Ornaments are done in a process called Inside Art.
Manufactured by Chase International in 1999, they were made in China and distributed by FIGI Graphics Inc., San Diego, CA., USA.
The centuries-old artistic tradition of reverse painting on the inside of glass. Through a small opening in each ornament, the artist uses delicate brush strokes to hand-paint on the inside of mouth-blown glass. From outlining to shading to color application, all work is painstakingly done in free hand. An artist may take several days to complete a single piece. This reverse-painting art form flourished during the 17th century, however today there are only a few artist groups, living in remote villages thoughout China, who possess the skill to create these ornaments.
They come in a hand-loomed silk damask box which is numbered #80-IAKIT with a bone enclosure and protected on all sides by the padded silk-lined interior and each ornament has a booklet included.
In very good + condition the set includes:
1-Snowman and Bears Orb which measures 3 inches tall and 3 inches wide,
1-Red Cardinal Birds and Leaves which measures 3 1/8 inches tall and 3 inches wide and
1-Noah's Ark which measures 3 1/4 inches tall and 3 inches wide.
An addition to any Inside Art Christmas Ornament Collection.
