Stunning and fanciful antique Czech beaded glass bird on nest Christmas ornament, circa 1950s-1960s.

This is a very special one of a kind antique vintage blown glass mama bird ornament, sitting on her gold bead eggs on a fancy cotton nest. She is simply wonderful, with a bright white body and magenta yellow wing patches. The black beak is super fine and comes to a fine point. The point tip of the beak still has the tiny ball of glass where the glass blower ended. Wow! The bird is highly sculptural with finely molded feather and wing details. The tail feathers are the original spun glass in a silvery-white color. The hand painted black dot eyes finish off this wonderful antique glass bird.

Her nest is very fancy and sparkly. The base is an ivory color cotton. It is stiff, likely mixed with paste or other binder for a harder material. It is rimmed with delightful gold embossed Dresden style foil trim. The nest is lined with antique silver curly wire, and eight large gold mercury glass bead eggs circle the form. Our lovely bird sits in the middle with her watchful eyes!

The beaded hanging wires and loop are signature Czech craftsmanship. Four wire ropes are beaded in hundreds of silvery seed beads. They are joined at the top with their ends curved into a decorative arch. Another large gold mercury glass bead finishes the top, and a silver beaded hanger completes this fantastic ornament.

This fine vintage white and magenta mercury glass bird with cotton nest Christmas ornament measures 4.5 inches tall, and 4.5 inches wide beak tip to tail end. It is in amazing, excellent condition with no chips, breaks, or damage. There is some oxidation on the tail end.

What a beautiful, unique, and striking early vintage blown glass bird on beaded cotton nest Christmas ornament. A must have for any antique bird or figural Christmas ornament collection. A thoughtful gift for the bird lover!
