Copperton Lane Antiques & Collectibles

Circa: 1920
Country of Origin: DE
Manufacturer: Pre War German Import
This 1920s Germany mold blown silvered glass clip-on Christmas ornament is a parrot, I believe, or possibly a cockatoo. It's 6-1/2 inches long including the spun glass fibers tail. The feathers and facial features of the bird are very well defined. The ornament was originally silver but now has a pearly white appearance due to the way the inner mercury has aged.

The parrot is mounted to the tin clip on double coiled spring legs, allowing it to tremble with any movement of the tree branch. The almost-white coloring makes the ornament look great on a traditional green Christmas tree.
