Antique Clip On Bird Ornament Germany 1920s, Large Multi Color Glass Songbird Christmas Ornament, Vintage Glass Bird
Colorful antique German blown glass clip on bird Christmas ornament, pink and green over silver. Circa early 1920s.
The bird is highly sculptural with finely molded feather and wing details. The long pointed black beak tip still has the tiny ball of glass where the glass blower ended. Wow! The tail feathers are the original spun glass. The colorful bird features four colors: a lovely pink back, green belly, black wing patches, and a dark brown head cap.
It measures 6.25 inches wide, beak tip to tail end. The blown glass body is 4.25 inches wide. The original spun glass tail and spring leg are intact. It is in excellent antique condition free of chips or cracks with a bare minimum of paint loss, the colors still bright and crisp. The tail end pike has a small “u” shape on one side where the tail attaches, which seems original and not a chip. There is some usual oxidation on the tail end.
What a beautiful antique German songbird Christmas ornament, a fine addition to any antique German or bird Christmas ornament collection.
