Early 1900s Rose Lantern On Clip. Glass German. Christmas Ornament For Sale
Early 1900s UnsilveredRoseLantern on Clip.
Pre-World War IGerman 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.
This rose is a flower ornament, as well as a possible candleholder for the Christmas tree.
Inside this silvered rose is mica, which must really sparkle when the candle inside is lit.
But we never inserted a candle, as we thought it would be too fragile to light.
But I will include a candle to place inside the ornament for you to use to make it authentic on the tree.
Soft manilla coloration, with pale green highlights.
3.25" and in amazing condition for an ornament over 120 years old.
A paint defects here and there, but expected for an ornament of this age.
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.
