Dresden Star Ornaments are made with Antique and Vintage Materials
Dresden Star Ornaments are handcrafted from vintage and antique materials and are created that way on purpose to look intentionally imperfect, like original old ornaments. You will see imperfections in these materials, which we believe adds charm and character. The patina and condition of materials varies with each and every ornament. With this in mind, we provide great thumbnail and full-size photos of each item to aid you in your buying decision, so PLEASE look carefully at all the pictures before you buy!
