SPECIAL FEATURES THIS FANTASTIC TOPPER IS FAMOUS, AS IT WAS RECENTLY FEATURED ON OUR NEW U-TUBE DEMO OF THE TWO OF US MAKING ORNAMENTS SYNCHRONIZED TO THE TUNE OF “CAROL OF THE BELLS”! (Visit VictorianOrnaments.com to see demo). A delightfully tall antique two-tiered indented glass topper is lavishly adorned (in true “Glenn” fashion) with 6 different trims inside each of its 6 indents, to include rare antique aqua Dresden papers. Large 6” excellent condition scrap angels holding decorated Christmas tree are backed with vintage aqua foil, antique tinsel, and old-stock curly spun glass. Two pairs of antique bumpy gold bells, rimmed in more Dresden paper, grace the two-tiered topper. HANDMADE AND SIGNED BY GLENN GIAIMO.
EACH DRESDEN STAR ORNAMENT IS TRULY ONE-OF-A-KIND, MADE ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY 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. Items described as “antique” are dated between 1870 and the early 1900s (prior to WWI). Items described as “vintage” are dated between 1915 (WWI) and the 1950s (mid-century). We also use Dresden trims (only on occasion) and crinkle wire (always used for durability) made more recently in Germany using techniques and equipment that have not changed over the past 150 years
