1900s Antique Figural Glass Ornament Large Frog Germany, Vintage Glass Frog Ornament
Wonderful very early large antique German figural glass frog ornament, circa 1900s.
It features incredible realistic molded details the Germans are known for. Look closely to see the bumpy skin texture, gills, and the linear bones in the legs. Early ornaments like this have so much more detail than the later frogs. And, it is a hard to find large size measuring 4 inches wide.
It is hand painted with washes of light silvery-green with a bright red mouth and eyes. The pike makes up the tail. It is in very good antique condition, with the ornament free of chips or cracks, the silvering still strong. The pike has a chip which is covered by the replaced metal cap. It shows a bit of the usual age related oxidation.
This large antique glass frog ornament will make a nice addition to any figural ornament collection or display, a special gift for the Christmas collector!
