This ornament and the others I have on are genuine and from an old collection. This ornament is one of 3 very similar white angel ones that I have on — see my other sales.
The glue on the back that holds the spun glass is obviously brown with age.
“'Chromos' is a shortened form of Chromolithography, the nineteenth century technique of color printing. Unlike contemporary four-color offset printing, with chromolithography, each color of an image is printed with a separate lithographic stone. The beauty of the chromolithographed image is the result of the skill and artistry of the printmaker's interpretation of the image to be printed. 'Scraps' refers to the wildly popular Victorian fad of sheets of lithographed, embossed, and die-cut images that were sold to be cut, composed and pasted into books, hence the term 'scrapbook'.”
scope of subject matter depicted on scraps was limited only by the Victorian imagination, and for the Christmas collector, the attraction to scraps lies in the beautiful renderings of innumerable Christmas motifs. Scraps were not only pasted into books. Those that were printed on heavier paper were popularly turned into Christmas tree ornaments. With a bit of tinsel and some blown-glass beads, a scrap ornament lends a Christmas tree not just sparkle, but also rich color and intricate detail. Scraps were a useful addition to any home-made ornament that could use decorative enrichment — Santa scraps were even applied to Christmas cookies!”
