HANG ON YOUR TREE OR DISPLAY IN A BOWL WITH YOUR EASTER EGG COLLECTION! We started with a molded cardboard egg candy-container lined with vintage Easter paper and covered it with early vintage foil, and embellished each half of the egg with beautiful antique Dresden paper trim and different antique scrap flowers for front and back sides. Egg was then detailed with antique silk chenille, antique scalloped netting and early vintage rayon ribbon (inside), and finished with lovely light green silk ribbon hanger. Handmade and signed by Gail Giaimo.
THIS ONE-OF-A-KIND ORNAMENT is made almost exclusively with antique and early vintage materials, including old glass ornament(s) with beautiful patina; detailed German made embossed scrap(s) and chromolithographs (most of them predate the 1900s and are meticulously backed with early papers and/or old tinsel); a variety of old fabric to include chenille, lace, ribbon and metallic trims; old decorative tinsel (most of which is from old tree garlands); and old papers of all kinds, including lovely old-stock Dresden paper trims, crepe paper, old foil, gift wrap, and other embellishments. The exceptions to the exclusive use of old materials are as follows: 1) occasionally we use newer Dresden paper made in Germany that has been embossed and stamped with antique equipment; 2) Our high-quality gold and silver crinkle-wire is made in Germany with antique equipment.
