A Time Remembered

Circa: 1999
Condition: Used
Manufacturer: Chase International/FIGI Graphics Inc./Made in China
This hand painted Christmas Ornament, Peaceful Winter, is 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.
It comes in a hand-loomed silk damask box with a bone enclosure and protected on all sides by the padded silk-lined interior.
A beautiful Church scene with people attending while the snow is falling.
In very good + condition there are some brown marks on the top of the ornament which I have shown in my pictures and it measures 5 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches wide.
The box is numbered #TR-LE-71760 while the ornament is numbered 2133/5000 it also comes with a booklet.
An addition to any Inside Art Christmas Ornament Collection.
