Early 1900s Robin With Umbrella. Well-dressed. On Clip. Glass German Ornament. For Sale

Early 1900s Robin With Umbrella. Well-dressed. On Clip.  Glass German Ornament.

Early 1900s Standing Well-Dressed Robin carrying an Umbrella for the Spring Rain.

Glass German Glass Christmas Tree Ornament.

Pre-World War I German German Glass Christmas Tree Ornament.

This is when the "White Tree" was in vogue, where ornaments had a white, soft pastel appearance.

This was in contrasty with the "Victorian Tree" where more color and excess were the norm.

This was more of a "Back to Nature" movement with white, clear, and snow like ornaments.

He is dressed to the hilt, with a great top hat, and a yellow vest and neck-tie.

And he is ready for the spring rains to protect himself, and his little wife and children.

Silvered inside.

Then painted a soft pearl color.

Red top hat,

Yellow vest, and not the feathers which extend outside the yellow vest.. great detail.

Yellow neck-tie around his neck, with a great jacket.

Red shirt, and beautiful pearl colored pants.

Great with the umbrella tucked under one wing.

On a clip, so he rests above the branch... so proud and an harbinger of spring to come.

4.25" and in very good condition.

According to various legends, one of these sacred birds once performed a heroic feat for humankind. Old tales from various parts of Europe lauded either the wren or the robin as the original fire fetcher, the creature who delivered the first flames to humankind. In addition, English folklore assigned supernatural abilities to the robin.

Glass ornament blown in Germany and hand painted there in the period before World War I.

I want to add this. Many forget that a positive form had to be carved out of pear wood, and what artistry that took. If a family was more wealthy, they purchased the molds. If they were a poorer family, they rented them from one of six companies who produced the molds for use in this cottage industry.

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.
