1920s Snowman Standing In Chimney. German Glass Christmas Ornament:
Snowman Standing in Chimney... almost like a Chimney Sweep.
1920sGerman Glass Christmas Tree Ornament.
Usually, Santa Claus appears in the chimney.
But this is a more unusual figural made for only four years.
It is a snow man standing in a chimney.
And from what we told at the museum in Lauscha, this was to be a chimney sweep.
White pearl colored lacquer on outside.
The snow man is very detailed, with the hat of a chimney sweeper, with two lines on side, as if brushes.
He is holding the broom, and has one black button, and detailed hands with black detailing.
The chimney is magnificent in that it simulates bricks.
Red lines delineate the cement between the bricks.
Very colorful and a really neat and different snow man ornament.
4.00" and in very good condition.
Glass ornament blown in Germany and hand painted there in the period after World War I in the early-1920s.
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 who just have to downsize. 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.There is nothing wrong These being listed today arein very good shape.They arevintage, notreproductions.
