Circa 1900, large 10" Victorian paper scrap ornament with beautiful detail and craftsmanship, a rare double sided cornucopia that features an angel and the Christ child.

This is a fabulous large antique paper Christmas ornament in excellent condition with bright chromolitho, beautiful colors and choice of scrap. A poinsettia flower and holly print paper form the cornucopia style cone, which is a rare form. The edges were cut with patterned scissors for a lacy look. Two pieces of Victorian paper scrap are attached to give this ornament a three dimensional feel. The top scrap forms the apex of the cone, with a candlelit Christmas tree, the baby Jesus with golden halo, an angel with wings, and a small child beholding the wonder. So sweet and lovely! A large piece of die cut scrap is attached to the front, a girl with a bright yellow dress and bonnet holding a bouquet of roses. It is decorated and trimmed with lead tinsel. Tinsel used for the round hanger is 1/4 inch thick. Tinsel strands are placed behind the girl like a bow in two places.

This antique Victorian cornucopia paper scrap tinsel ornament is in excellent condition, especially for its age and it is still very sturdy and strong. Just one piece of old cellophane tape shows at the top, and there are two very minor tears at the left edge. Small staples are visible at the back, typical of handmade ornament construction of this era. It measures 10 inches tall from the top of the tinsel to the bottom. The ornament itself is 9.25 inches tall and 5 inches at its widest point. The angel scrap is about 3 inches tall, and the girl scrap is 4.5 inches tall.

This is a superb genuine antique scrap tinsel ornament of very high quality. The double sided cornucopia cone shape is rare. Enjoy it on your old fashioned tree or as special holiday decoration. It is simply beautiful!
