Bright Drum. Red, White, and Green with Glitter.

German Glass Christmas Tree Ornament.

1947-1952.

Blown and created in West Germany just after World War II.

The formulas for lacquer being lost and destroyed, the glass blowers had to start over.

This is evident in the coloration used on this ornament.

Really historical in nature, and it was not until the late 1950s that they were able to duplicate the colors as used previous to World War II.

Pearl white top and bottom.

Neat red and green triangular lacquered pattern all around the drum.

Enhanced with scrolling of glitter on top and bottom of drum.

3.25" and in very good condition.
