WOW! A very scarce antique mouth blown German clip on stork bird Christmas ornament, in fabulous condition. Circa early 1920s. In Germany, to have a stork nest in your barn or rooftop is considered good luck!

This is a very special antique figural glass bird ornament. These unsilvered white bird ornaments were only made for a short period of time and are hard to find. It is simply wonderful, with a white matte body and a super fine, open, orange-red beak. The beak is extremely fine and fragile; it's somewhat amazing that it is still intact after all of these years! The bird is highly sculptural with deeply molded feather and wing details. There are small black wing patches towards the back. The white tail feathers are the original spun glass. Hand painted black dot eyes finish off this wonderful antique clip on bird ornament. 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 and then hand finished with painted details.

This fine vintage white unsilvered glass clip on stork pelican Christmas ornament measures 5.25 inches wide, beak tip to tail end. The blown glass body is 3.5 inches wide and it stands about 3.25 inches tall. It is attached to an early scallop-shaped metal clip, with two springs acting as the legs. This style of clip helps to date this rare ornament. It is in very good condition with no chips or breaks. There is some minor age related specks of paint loss, and oxidation to the metal clip.

What an amazing and very scarce antique vintage German blown glass white stork bird clip on Christmas ornament. A must have for any antique German or figural Christmas ornament collection. A thoughtful gift for the bird lover!
