Antique German Glass Ornament Cornucopia with Toys, Large Vintage Figural Mercury Glass Ornaments, 1920s
Fabulous very early embossed mercury glass Christmas ornament, a large child’s cornucopia filled with fun toys! Circa 1920s Germany.
The bright silvered mercury glass is very thin, indicative of early Lauscha glass ornaments. A nicely molded 3D waffle cone cornucopia holds a doll, teddy bear, gift package, and other toys. It is the largest version of this particular ornament design, measuring 4.5 inches tall to the top of the cap, and 2 inches at its widest point. It is in excellent condition free of chips or cracks. There is some usual oxidation on the pike.
We love this antique embossed mercury glass Christmas ornament. It will make a wonderful addition to any antique ornament collection, a great gift for the special child in your life!
SIDE NOTE: This is a one of the classic antique German figural ornaments which is featured in many of the Christmas Collectibles reference books. It is one of the larger sizes made, at 4.5 inches tall. They were also made at 3.25 and 3.75 inches tall. This largest size is harder to find and is of higher value.
We have wonderful selection of antique pre 1946 figural glass ornaments!
