Early 1920s Boy Carrying His Sled. Unusual German Glass Christmas Ornament For Sale

Early 1920s Boy Carrying His Sled. Unusual German Glass Christmas  Ornament

Boy carrying Sled. Very Unique and Different. German Glass Christmas Tree Ornament.

Early 1920s.

This is an amazing, very unusual ornament.

This is one which has always intrigued me--due to the subject matter and the creativity of the original mold artist.

Silvered inside.

A little boy is carrying his sled.. no doubt to the top of the hill or home after a long day of playing in the winter snow.

He is wearing a green stocking cap.

Along with that, the typical snow full bodied snow suit, for he has to keep warm.

His face is just precious, and so detailed.

Blushed cheeks because he is out in the cold, or just was.

Sleigh is so detail being pearl colored, and outlined with gold lacquer.

I love the molding of the sleigh in the back, on his shoulders, as it is like the one I had when I was a kid

The wooden slats.. oh, the memories.

4.25" and really in extra-ordinary condition, considering its age.

Glass ornament blown in Germany and hand painted there in the period after World War I in the early 1920s.

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.

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 thesaleeer started very high, and then spent time backing down to get a offer.
