1920s Antique German Glass Ornament Whistling, Free Blown Christmas Ornament
Wonderful antique free blown glass trumpet horn ornament with blowing whistle and paper Germany label, circa early 1920s. Fabulous!
This is a striking bright red glass horn measuring 4 inches wide. The original whistle disk is present after all of these years and it still blows and makes a wonderful sound! The glass is very thin, indicative of this early Lauscha, Germany era. An original paper Made in Germany label is still present which helps to date this fine ornament. It is in excellent antique condition free of chips or cracks with just a bit of minor paint loss.
This is a fine antique glass horn Christmas ornament to add to your collection, well over 100 years old and rare with the working whistle and Germany label. Makes a thoughtful gift for the musician in your life!
SIDE NOTE: Free blown ornaments were made without a mold, blown by the artist and shaped with a paddle. This technique was very time consuming, thus, these ornaments are much more rare than the classic mold blown figurals.
