6 ½” tall x 5” wide, Clips to a tree branch with antique candle-clip
Susan asked us to make some ornaments for her angel-themed Christmas tree. She loved the idea of having a clip-on ornament to fill in the gaps between branches. This circa 1890s scrap angel was backed to old-stock curly spun glass. We selected a pretty vintage double-sphere ornament (see back) because we loved the way the soft tones of light blue-green, and frosty white played with the colors in the cherub. As seen in close-up photo, bottom of ornament is decorated with rare antique lace rose decorations and Dresden paper stars with lavender and aqua rhinestone centers.
Lovingly handcrafted and signed by Glenn 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.
