Early 1900s Hedgehog. Animal Shaped Glass German Christmas Tree Ornament. For Sale

Early 1900s Hedgehog.  Animal Shaped Glass German Christmas Tree Ornament.

Hedgehog on the run.

Early 1900s German Glass Christmas Tree Ornament.

4.25" and in very good condition.

Silvered inside.

Then painted with a pearl colored, white translucent lacquer.

Black eyes, and his black spine, ending in a curled tail at end.

You can see he is on the run, as his molding is as if he is running through the grass.

A Hedgehog? You are asking.

What does that have to do with Christmas.

Well, to the Germans (and other Europeans), the hedgehog is very important to their culture.

Those with the hedgehog as their animal totem know how to take care of themselves and do so with grace and style. We make this association by observing the hedgehog when it is threatened. It packs itself tightly in a neat little ball, exposing some lethal looking quills. Any predator who takes a bite of this prickly morsel will spit it right back out.

Same goes with those who honor the hedgehog as their totem - these people always land on their feet and go through challenges with the same calm, cool practicality as the hedgehog does.

This little creature packs a powerful symbolic punch with animal symbolism including, and connecting with the deeper meaning of the hedgehog will restore your own power supply.

Blown before 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 which are down-sizing, and put up one tree in our den and one in our dining room. 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 realize a lot of ornaments, but I have collected for over 60 years... a long time indeed.

There is nothing wrong with these Christmas ornaments These being listed today are in very good shape. They are vintage, not reproductions. I guarantee that. 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 the saleeer started very high, and then spent time backing down to get a offer.

I am more than happy to combine postage to save money.

THIS ORNAMENT WILL BE INSURED, THUS THE COST OF SENDING INCLUDES INSURANCE.

Just let me know you are multiple offerding and I will invoice you when you are finished offerding and wish for me to send the items. Then, I will combine postage and send to you, and send final invoice. If any questions about this, please email me.
