Large Heidt Bumpy Double Heart Indent Christmas Ornament, USA Glass Ornament 1930s
Wonderful large double sided Heidt bumpy heart Christmas ornament in fabulous condition. American made ornament, circa late 1930s by the German ornament maker Heidt! (These are often mistaken for USA Premier ornaments, and sometimes even as German ornaments.)
This ornament has a unique history. Many German ornament makers fled Germany during the war, and a man named Heidt arrived in New York and created his ornament company there. This is one such classic ornament that he created.
This deeply embossed jumbo ornament is so beautiful with a striking deep diamond pattern creating a bumpy texture all around the form. The center features a floral indent on both sides. The pike is extra long, a signature Heidt feature.
It measures 4.25 inches tall to the top of the cap and 3.25 inches wide. The pike is intact and is topped with a classic sawtooth metal Heidt style cap (our photos show a close-up of this special cap). It is in excellent vintage condition free of chips, cracks, or paint loss. Our photos show all sides of this lovely ornament.
This is a rare early USA glass Christmas ornament, a great addition to any American ornament collection. A must have for the Heidt collector!
