Antique Silver Free Blown Christmas Ornament Hanging Bird, German Mercury Glass Ornaments, Antique Glass Bird Ornaments, Silver Ornaments
Lovely early hanging bird ornament in excellent condition, circa 1930s.
The silvered glass is very thin and fine, typical of this early era of German glass ornament making. This antique free blown bird or swan has an annealed hook on its back for hanging. It retains the original spun glass tail feathers which have aged to a nice silvery gray. It measures 4.5 inches wide, beak tip to tail end. The blown glass body is 3.25 inches wide. It is in excellent antique condition with no chips or breaks. There is some usual minor age related oxidation at the tail.
This is a beautiful antique bird ornament, so pretty on a silver tree. Makes a thoughtful gift for the bird lover!
