7” tall x 3” wide ~Fabric-lined container opens from the top. Victorians would have hung these on branches late on Christmas eve with sweet treats concealed inside for children to discover in the morning.
Leanne asked me to make a candy container similar to one that was sold. I made a cylindrical candy container basically from scratch by starting with a cardboard tube, creating my own top and bottom, and decorating it with vintage green embossed foil paper (around cone), antique silk fabric (inside) and rare antique gold embossed Dresden paper acanthus leaf border. The gold “Merry Christmas” on the lid of the container is a beautiful rare antique Dresden paper script!

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.
