Large Heidt Embossed Double Star Indent Teardrop Christmas Ornament, USA Glass Ornament 1930s
Extremely rare large double indent Heidt teardrop glass 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 blown glass red ornament is so beautiful with a lovely six-pointed star indent on both sides. It is framed with a series of round, ribbed, and leaf shaped borders. The pike is extra long, a signature Heidt feature. There is a small pontil on the bottom indicative of a mouth blown ornament.
It is a very hard to find large size measuring measures 4.5 inches tall to the top of the cap and 2.5 inches wide. The pike is intact and is topped with an unmarked metal cap. It is in excellent vintage condition free of chips or cracks and minimum oxidation. There is a bit of age related paint loss on the sides.
This is a rare early USA glass Christmas ornament, a great addition to any American ornament collection. A must have for the Heidt collector!
We also have a wonderful vintage Heidt grape bunch ornament.
