***Our ornaments are almost exclusively made with vintage and antique materials 1880s-1950 (all colorful die-cut paper illustrations are 120+ years old). ****
This is part of a collection of ornaments Dennis asked me to make him for Christmas this year. His one request was to “make them as beautiful and detailed as you can”. I started with a magnificent 10” 1890s scrap boy dressed for the cold European winter and paired him with a humongous green icicle ornament just the right scale. A luxurious assortment of gilded Gold trims, along with fabrics in colors matching the boy create magic and splendor; antique broach, glittered chenille to create freshly fallen snow, silver beadwork and loads of vertically hung crinkle-wire tie all the elements together.
Lovingly handcrafted and signed by Gail Giaimo.
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.
