Circa 1890s-1910s, an amazing, authentic lead tinsel and glass, wire wrapped Christmas ornament in the Victorian style with three types of metal wrap.

Here we have a fabulous turn of the century Victorian wire wrapped ornament with a rare mercury glass center. The teardrop shaped ornament is made of very thin mouth blown glass and it is an unusual elongated shape that you don't find very often. It is the center focal point of the ornament, framed in a thick lead tinsel oval. It is wrapped with super thin curly wire embellishments, and is finished with a string tinsel starburst at the top center. Beautiful!

This special antique Victorian tinsel and mercury glass Christmas ornament measures 5 inches tall and 2.75 inches at its widest point. The mercury glass teardrop measures 2.75 inches long. It is in excellent antique condition. What a great addition to any antique Victorian or wire wrapped ornament collection!

(Side Note: These wire wrapped ornaments were very popular during the late 1800s and are very delicate, therefore, few have survived. This antique ornament is quite delicate and fragile. Some small bits of the curly wire may flake off in the jostling of shipping, though we will pack it extra carefully and double box it. It is quite brittle due to its age.)
