1930s Antique Free Blown Sailboat with Dresden Sail German Ornament Wire Wrapped Gold Boat

Classic antique free blown glass sailboat with Dresden sail, circa 1930s Germany.

This wonderful vintage nautical Christmas ornament features a highly detailed gold embossed Dresden paper sail which is attached to the long pike. The pike makes up the mast, inserted into the cotton which fills the inside of the gold blown glass boat.

It measures 5.25 inches tall to the top of the cap and is 3.25 inches wide. It is in very good antique condition free of chips, cracks, or breaks. There is some usual age related oxidation and a bit of minor paint loss, especially on the back of the pike. A few of the wire strands are loose. A previous owner attached two small pieces of clear tape at the top of the boat, likely to hold the wire in place. We have left it as found, a part of its history! (The tape is loose and could be removed if desired.) It retains its original unmarked gold metal cap which helps to date this earlier ornament.

What a unique German wire wrapped boat with Dresden scrap Christmas ornament. A thoughtful gift for the boat lover or sailor in your life!

We have a sister ornament to this one featuring a scrap sailor riding a red free blown sailboat ornament.
