Measures approx 4 1/2" tall- One of the most unique & interesting lines we've come across in our search for hand blown German ornaments! When we first saw these, we thought the glassblower was sending us pictures of things his grandfather made, just to confirm that this was the sort of thing we were looking for....In a tiny shop, two 3rd generation master craftsmen create these "vintage" pieces, using molds handed down through the years. They carefully age each piece, soaking classic style caps and clips in a solution to lightly rust them, then they dull down the silvered finish and mute the lacquers used in painting and finally, the ornament is carefully wrapped in the classic Victorian tinsel wire, but even then, he wraps it loosely, so it looks like the old tinsel wire that has stretched over the years! The result is an ornament that blends in perfectly when you display your originals! This small shop has a large collection of rare and unique molds, allowing the collector to fill in the blanks spots due to the high costs of the originals, or the novice can start their collection with these, and move up to the originals as money permits...
