Early 1920s Squirrel With Pine Cone. Unusual German Glass Christmas Ornament For Sale

Early 1920s Squirrel With Pine Cone. Unusual German Glass Christmas  Ornament

Squirrel with Pine Cone. 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.

Squirrel is storing a pine cone, rather than an acorn for the winter.

Not very edible, but a really neat concept for Christmas.

Soft pearl coloration.

Red mouth.

Black eyes, even with his eyebrows accented in black.

His little paws are also so well molded, and outlined with black lacquer.

He is on his haunches.

And a large puffy, detailed tail is standing up in the back.

Great detail in the pine cone as well.

4.00" 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.

There is nothing wrong These being listed today arein very good shape.They arevintage, notreproductions. 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 thesaleeer started very high, and then spent time backing down to get a offer.
