Fabulous early unsilvered mica snowman figural glass ornament, in great condition! Circa 1910s-1920s.

This is a happy and sparkly antique blown glass snowman with broom ornament. It is simply wonderful, featuring all over white mica for the body, and a rare unsilvered face. The detailed snowman head is nicely molded. The arms wrap around the snowman holding his old fashioned blue broom. He wears a very tall blue pointed hat. This tall hat makes up the long, thin pike which helps to date this to the 1920s. (Later snowmen had much shorter pikes.)

This fine antique vintage unsilvered glass snowman figural Christmas ornament measures 3.25 inches tall to the top of the cap. The glass is very thin and fine, typical of this early era of German glass ornament making, where each ornament was individually blown by mouth into a highly detailed mold. He is in very good condition with no chips or cracks to the body. The left side of the pike has a chip at the top, barely noticeable with the cap on. It has the original metal cap and hanging loop which is unmarked. There is some minor paint and mica loss, and oxidation to the cap. It looks like there may be some residual fake "snow" spray on the back of the hat, or more likely, an overspray of the white mica.

What a fun German glass mica snowman with broom and hat Christmas ornament. A must have for any antique Germany or vintage figural Christmas ornament collection. Rare find being unsilvered and white mica!
