Antique Tinsel and Paper Christmas Ornaments Twins 9″, Pair Large German Victorian Boy Girl Scrap Tinsel Cellophane
Fabulous extra large early 1900s German tinsel and paper scrap ornaments, featuring a sweet boy and girl in their winter finery! Sold as a pair, framed in lovely silver tinsel with cellophane strips.
These are amazing antique Victorian Christmas ornaments, featuring striking high quality litho printing that the Germans are known for. Up to 24 color printing plates were used to create the fine detail shown here.
They are large tinsel and paper ornaments, measuring 9 inches tall from the top tinsel loop to the bottom, and about 2 inches wide. The boy on the left is playing his French horn. The girl on the right holds her songbook of Christmas Carols and a lit candle. They have highly detailed cherub-like faces with bright blue eyes and rosy cheeks. Please view all of the detail photos to appreciate their period Victorian costumes!
There is a silver tinsel wire loop on the top and bottom of each, with an additional tinsel spray on the bottom. Red cellophane strips (aged to a light lilac color) finish these sweet German ornaments.
Both are in superb condition, well over 120 years old! The details and colors are still vibrant and crisp. The lead tinsel is still sparkly and those cellophane strips really set off these ornaments. What a stunning set of antique paper tinsel Christmas ornaments, hard to find in this extra large size and as a pair!
