Jumbo Glass Fluted Teardrop Christmas Ornament Germany, Large Vintage Glass Balloon Ornament
Elegant antique German fluted glass balloon tear drop ornament in a rare jumbo size! Circa 1920s-1930s.
What a delightful early blown glass Christmas ornament! It is a large size at 5.5 inches tall to the top of the cap and 3 inches at its widest point. The bright silver ornament features vertical fluted indents with a crown-like upper top which is also fluted around the rim. There are alternating stripes of gold and red that flow around the form. So pretty!
The glass is very thin and fine, typical of these early German ornaments. It comes to a fine point at the bottom and retains the original tiny ball of glass where the glass blower ended. Wow! It is topped with an original unmarked Lauscha style metal cap and is in excellent antique condition, showing just a bit of minimum age related wear. Our photos show all sides, turning in a clockwise motion.
This extra large German fluted glass Christmas ornament will be a fabulous addition to any antique ornament collection, a thoughtful gift for the collector of fine antique German ornaments!
