Circus Elephant On Colored Ball. 1920s Glass German Glass Ornament For Sale

Circus Elephant standing on Ball.

German Glass Christmas Tree Ornament. 1920s.

Silvered inside, and lacquered so elegantly.

The first circus I attended was in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, as a young lad.

I can remember elephants marching around the circle, but never one on a ball.

I missed that.

Silvered inside.

Gold lacquered elephant.

Trimmed with green, and wearing a red blanket on its back.

Ball is red with gold painted lines.

Very nice and really so American in that we were, and still are (some of us) in love with the circus.

3.25" 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.

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.

I start all my sales at .99 cents as it is an sale and I just never cared when I went to live sale and thesaleeer started very high, and then spent time backing down to get a offer.
