Wonderful antique German mercury glass clip on bird Christmas ornament, gorgeous red pink silver, circa 1950s.
The bird has nicely molded feather and wing details. The wings and back are a lovely red that fades to a soft pink. The pointed beak is bright red and still has the little ball of glass attached where the glass blower ended. Amazing! The tail feathers are the original spun glass in a silvery-white color.
It measures 4.5 inches long, beak tip to tail end. The blown glass body is 3 inches. The single spring leg is attached to the rectangular unmarked metal clip. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or breaks. There is a bit of usual oxidation on the tail end and clip.
What a beautiful and striking vintage German clip on bird Christmas ornament. A fabulous addition to any antique ornament collection!
