Biedermann Christmas Ornament D-1972 No. 3 In Series For Sale

Biedermann Christmas Ornament D-1972 No. 3 In Series

You're offerding on a1972 Biedermann Commemorative Christmas ornament. It's number 3 in the series andin the original Biedermann celophane wrapping on green cardboard backing with printed information on the ornament. Condition is very good for age with no tarnish spots on one.

The second one has a small amount of tarnish and the celophane is open at the sides.

In speaking with the Biedermann Company, when these were made they were coated with laquer to keep them from tarnishing and keeping their shine.The laquer can wear off and has on some ornaments, resulting in sometarnished spots on them.

These are easily removed per the company'sinstructions. In an aluminum pan place 1 cup of boiling water, 1 tsp of baking soda and soak the ornament until the laquer comes completely off. White vinegar will do the trick too! Polish the ornament with a brass polish and spray with a clear laquer.

I chose to leave the ornament in their current state and have included these cleaning instructions for the buyer should the buyer want to clean them.

Shipping Info: The handling charge includes the cost of insuring the item (required)when shipped and is based on the price of item and the USPS charge for insurance.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE BIEDERMANN ORNAMENT

The Biedermanns originated the creation of a single Christmas ornament commemorating each year, drawing on the talent from this region. In the fall of 1970 they contacted several artisan families of Schwaebisch Gmuend, Germany, for centuries the European center of brass, silver and gold ornament cutting. These aritisans designed and cut the first ornament, which depicted the town square of Schwaebisch Gmuend.

Since that first edition, each year a group of artists has selected a single design from those submitted by the townspeople and the ornament to be cut for the coming season is chosen. This is now a tradition that the people of Schwaebisch Gmuend and America cherish. Designs through the years have been selected from those created by school children and adults. Master Cutter, Georg Neumaier, directs the production of the Biedermann Commemorative Ornament and is also involved in selecting the year's winning design.

The now very valuable original brass ornament was supplemented in 1984 by the first edition silver-plated ornament. Beginning in 1987, alternate years depict the story of "The Twelve Days of Christmas." Nineteen ninety-eight began the first edition of the "Christmas Quotations" Series of ornaments.
