Circa: 1948 Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Mid Centurhy West German Import
This fancy indented diorama style blue glass Christmas ornament has a scrap paper angel or cherub in the center surrounded by a puff of pale pink cotton. The ornament is encircled by a wired tinsel star and is wrapped in crinkly gold bullion wire. It was made in Western Germany in the late 1940s to early 1950s.
The ornament is about 3-3/4 inches diameter including the star frame. There is some minor paint wear to the back from rubbing of the wires, and a little clouding of the center indent from deterioration of the inner silvering. The angel and cotton cloud slide a bit, apparently the glue holding them in place didn't hold. There are no chips or breaks.
