Early 1870s Victorian Wire-wrapped Basket Of Cherries. Glass Xmas Ornament. For Sale

Early 1870s Victorian Wire-wrapped Basket Of Cherries. Glass Xmas Ornament.

Early 1870s Victorian Wire-Wrapped Basket with Three Glass Cherries. Ornament. German Christmas Tree Ornament.

This is one of the very early glass ornaments, made in Lauscha, Germany. Blown without the use of a mold--free blown from a single tube of glass, it was shaped into the ornament that you seeby the fathers in the German household. Then the mothers would paint and decorate the ornament. The grandmothers would do the wire-wrapping as they had the patience to do this very laborious difficult task. This was a cottage industry, a means for the German families to earn money during the winter when they could not work in the fields. A wonderful heritage in that each ornament is individually finished and a true work of art.

Unsilvered inside, it was lacquered a soft pale blue.

Very heavy early crinkly wire is wrapped around the entire ornament.

Then finished with a more thin silver crinkly wire.

This holds in place the fancy silver wire bottom.. four loops to form base fo the basket.

And top four more loops to form rim of basket.

Four unsilvered red glass cherries on tiny stems inside the vase cavity.

Then a silver crinkly wire handle to place it on the tree.

Really early, and just fabulous.

It cannot get more Victorian than this basket.
