1900s Glass Birds In Nest On Clip. Mother Bird On Spring. German Ornament. For Sale

1900s Glass Birds In Nest On Clip. Mother Bird On Spring.  German Ornament.

Early 1900s Unusual Three Birds in Nest, with Mother Bird on the side on Spring. On Clip.

Glass German Glass Christmas Tree Ornament.

A very early 1900s bird themed ornament, created in the early 1900s, or perhaps before.

The center is a molded glass bird's nest.

Molding of weaving of a real nest is so expertly done.

Three little birds are sitting in the nest waiting for the attention of their mother and father.

So detailed with little painted black eyes, andblack heads. It appears as they are facing each other with beaks open

Waiting for worms... I would venture to say.

And there is Momma, on the side of the nest on little spring, inserted into little glass annealed point on the side.

Mother is unsilvered , and has a spun glass tail.

Momma bird has a black beak and black eyes.

Blue head, and is a bit worn at the end of the tail.. as you can see.

Such a marvelous reproduction of nature through a Christmas tree ornament.

Always good luck for the Germans to have a bird's nest in tree, and this is complete with mom and her little birds.

Great asit stands above the bough.

4.75" and in very good condition.

Glass ornament blown in Germany and hand painted there in the period between World War I and World War II—the Golden Age of Glass ornaments.

I want to add this. Many forget that a positive form had to be carved out of pear wood, and what artistry that took. If a family was more wealthy, they purchased the molds. If they were a poorer family, they rented them from one of six companies who produced the molds for use in this cottage industry.

This was a cottage industry, a means for the Germans to make money during the winter when they could not work in the fields. The sons and fathers blew the ornaments. The girls and mom would silver the ornaments inside, and then individually paint the ornaments, and grandma would take to the train station in the spring when the others were back in the fields. Then they went to the sea coast, put on ships, and arrived in New York to be delivered across the country, and we used them to decorate our trees. The origin is Lauscha, Germany.

We are an older couple which are down-sizing, and put up one tree in our den and one in our dining room. These ornaments did not fit on the trees this year, and it seems senseless to keep them in boxes in the back closet. So hopefully new caretakers can be found for these German ornaments being listed tonight.
