Early 1900s Singing Frog In Tuxedo. Unusual German Glass Christmas Ornament:
Singing Frog, in Tuxedo, Standing in a wonderful entertaining pose.
German Glass Christmas Tree Ornament from the early 1900s.
A very different figural ornament. I have seen weather frogs, leaping frogs, and sitting frogs, but never a standing entertaining frog.
He is wearing a tuxedo and dressed to the max. His mouth is wide open just like a soprano or opera singer.
In fact his mouth is actually an indent.
Wonderful soft gold to pale green lacquered color.
Blackeyes.. so neat and different.
Even a red bow-tie around his neck.
His arms are at his chest, just as a great singer would be posed.
And he is singing, but is so soft, you will never be bothered by him on the tree..
There he promises to bring you good luck.
The frog has been associated with weather predictions, according to German myths. But there is more. When the frog jumps into your life it may indicate now is a time to find opportunities in transition. We see animal symbolism of transition with the frog in its unique growth cycle. The frog undergoes incredible transformations to reach the destination of full adulthood, and so do we as humans.
4.00" and in very good condition.
Glass ornament blown in Germany and hand painted there in the period before World War I and World War I.
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.
