$89.99


Very sweet and delicate nicely molded antique German figural glass Christmas ornament in superb condition. Circa 1920s. Featured on page 218 of John Lightner’s “Christmas Rarities- Rare Antique German Glass Ornaments”, 2007 edition.

The glass is very thin and fine, typical of this early era of German glass ornament making, individually blown by mouth into a highly detailed mold and then hand finished with painted details.

This is the classic “Girl in a Flower Basket, or, “Flower Girl” antique ornament. She sits in a gold woven basket with a large white flower in the center and five others wrapping around. She has a beautifullt detailed painted face and a red coat and hat. The tall pike creates her cap. It measures 2.5 inches tall to the top of the unmarked metal cap. Has the original flat Lauscha style hanging loop. It is in superb antique condition free of chips or cracks to the ornament, the silvering still very strong. There is a tiny bit of minor age related paint loss on coat and hat - see photos.
