Large 9" Victorian paper candy cornucopia ornament with beautiful detail and craftsmanship. Circa early 1900s, American made. Free Shipping!

This is a fabulous pre-World War I USA candy container and Christmas ornament, traditionally filled with candy and nuts then hung on the Christmas tree. It is in excellent condition with bright chromolitho, and choice of scrap, which is an American early 1900s Scrap of a Dutch Boy. It features a holly and berry printed design on thick paper, doubled and glued together to create a heavier container to hold the candy.

Three styles of silver tinsel decorate this container ornament. There is a silver wire tinsel handle, with tinsel trim around the cup. Silver tinsel sprays are inserted behind the boy on both sides, giving a 3D feel to this cornucopia. The bottom is finished with another silver tinsel spray. The edges of the paper cup were trimmed with curves for a lacy look.

This antique Victorian paper candy cornucopia scrap tinsel ornament is in excellent condition, especially for its age at over 110 years old! It measures 9 inches tall from the top of the tinsel to the bottom and is about 3 inches at its widest. It is still very sturdy and strong, with no tears or creasing. The litho graphics are bright, crisp, and beautiful. There is some candy residue on the inside, showing as a few random light pink spots. This is a beautifully crafted antique paper and tinsel Christmas ornament, a fine example of hard to find early American made cornucopias!

Sweets for children at Christmastime have always been an important part of holiday celebrations. Once emptied of candy, these beautiful containers might be saved as ornaments or decorations for years to come. Yet many were destroyed in the opening process, or simply thrown away once their contents were consumed. Thus, they are quite rare and hard to find. This one is exceptional with its hand crafted quality, a fabulous addition to any antique Christmas collection.
