    7” Tall x 2” Wide, Clips to a tree branch with vintage candle-clip


    ***Our ornaments are almost exclusively made with vintage and antique materials 1880s-1950 (all colorful die-cut paper illustrations are 120+ years old). Scroll past Special Features for details***

    This Valentine gem is packed with layered 3-D details, especially reminiscent of the intricate Diorama Victorian Valentine’s Day cards. For the glass element, I picked a pretty double-sided indent spire ornament, flipped it upside down and attached it to a candle-clip, and embellished it with Dresden paper and tiny metallic fabric trims. I was inspired by this cupid sitting on an anvil, holding a mallet in one hand and with twin hearts dangling from the other. I created my own composition with more doves. I added 4 doves to a miniature wreath of flowers and one in Cupid’s lap. Then I added my own Dresden paper railing. Passionflowers continue the theme, with 3 surrounding a heart edged with tiny pink crepe paper (top) and two flowers tucked inside the indent. A garden trellis (from a Victorian pop-up Valentine) is layered behind Cupid. I added transparent green and red cellophane behind the trellis so the ornament glows under the tree lights.  The backside is just as beautifully decorated.

    Our Signature Style - To Make an Ornament for You that Lasts for Generations! You will know you have a ultra-custom Dresden Star Work of Art because we sign and date each and every ornament, as well as add our gold hang tag with your specific ornament’s unique one-of-a-kind inventory number on it. You will receive your ornament gently packed between layers of tissue paper in a beautiful embossed gold box with care and handling instructions. With over 15 years of experience, we are expert at wire-wrapping each ornament to help protect it against accidental breakage (just like those smart Victorians). We take extra time and pains to meticulously back every scrap to cardstock and old-stock papers to protect these beautiful and fragile illustrations so they will last for generations to come.


    Just Imagine, You are Viewing an Ornament made with Materials 60 to 150 Years Old! Dresden Star Ornaments are almost exclusively made with antique and vintage materials to include: glass ornaments from the 1890s to1950s (most of which were made in Germany); colorful Victorian embossed & die-cut paper “scraps” and chromolithographs from postcards and advertising trade cards (made in Europe between the 1870s and 1910); antique and vintage fabric to include chenille, lace, ribbon and metallic trims; antique and vintage tinsel from tree garlands and old-stock German-made Lametta tinsel; gold and silver old-stock Dresden paper trims, crepe paper, foil, gift wrap, spun-glass, and other embellishments.


    Since many of our creations contain glass ornaments that are as much as 120 years old, the condition and patina will vary, which this is part of their vintage one-of-a-kind charm and character. Items described as “antique” are dated between the 1870s and 1920. Items described as “vintage” are dated between the 1920s and the 1950s (mid-century). We also use newer Dresden trims (on occasion) and crinkle wire (to wire-wrap ornaments for durability) made more recently in Germany using techniques and equipment that have not changed over the past 150 years.
