Antique German Double Figural Glass Clip On Ornament Owl and Green Fir Tree, 1940s
Super rare antique double blown glass ornament, a wise white owl and green fir tree with tuchsheer greenery on clip, circa 1940s.
This is an amazing German double clip ornament and it’s in fabulous condition. A tall fir tree features colorful dots as ornaments and is finished with mica snow. The white and silver owl is so striking and handsome with nicely molded feather and wing details. He is finished with a hand painted face and orange dot beak. Both sit in their own metal coil cup which are attached to the antique clip. There are fun branches of tuchsheer inside each, framing the pieces nicely. (Tuchsheer is a German faux greenery used during this era that mimics pine boughs.) The assembled ornament is 4 inches tall including the clip. The tree itself measures 3 inches tall and the owl is 2 inches. This fine ornament is in excellent antique condition free of chips, breaks, or cracks. There is age related oxidation to the clip and coil cups.
This German double owl Christmas ornament is so hard to find, a must have for any antique German or figural Christmas ornament collection. A thoughtful gift for the owl collector!
