Very early antique German blown glass clip on Father Christmas Santa Christmas ornament, on a very old antique clip made of gold colored tin! Circa late 1890s to early 1900s.


This is a very special and scarce antique Victorian figural Santa ornament. The glass is very thin and fine, typical of this early era of German glass ornament making. It is very hard to find these old ornaments that include this style of original scallop shaped clip. The later clip on ornaments opened towards the front, with earlier ornaments opening to the back as this one does.

He is simply wonderful, featuring his classic red suit and coat trimmed in white. He holds his hands together in front of him. He measures 3.5 inches tall including the clip. The blown glass body is 2.5 inches tall which is inserted into the coiled cup. The large gold flashed tin clip is fancy and ornate, with a fun antique scallop fan shape which is quite rare and indicative of its age. This fine ornament is in excellent antique condition with with no chips, breaks, or cracks. There is age related paint loss and oxidation to the clip and cup.

What a wonderful very early antique vintage German mercury glass clip on Father Christmas Santa Belsnickle Christmas ornament. It is super rare with the antique clip that opens to the back with the gold flashed tin. A must have for any antique German or figural Christmas ornament collection. A thoughtful gift for the Santa collector!
