Amazing antique extended legs figural ornament in fabulous condition, hard to find early 1900s Victorian Lauscha Germany ornament.  Featured on page 94 of John Lightner's Christmas Rarities- Rare Antique German Glass Ornaments, 2007 edition. Wow! Free Shipping.

This is a hard to find early antique Happy Hooligan glass Christmas ornament. These finely made German character ornaments were made in the Lauscha region north of Nuremberg, and became popular during Victorian times.

It features strong silvering, bright paint, and is a large size measuring 4.5 inches tall. He wears his well known signature tin can hat, bright pink coat, and gold extended legs. Black boots have upturned toes. His face is hand painted with the signature big Happy Hooligan grin.

It is in excellent antique condition with no chips or cracks. The pike is intact and strong. It retains the original unmarked metal cap and Lauscha style flat hanging loop. It has a bit of minor age related paint loss here and there, but overall excellent. (Old extended leg ornaments such as these often show heavy paint loss.) These antique extended leg German ornaments are becoming quite rare and desirable.

This amazing Happy Hooligan extended legs blown glass Christmas ornament is well over 100 years old. It is a very special antique German figural ornament, especially in such wonderful condition. A must-have ornament for the serious collector!

SIDE NOTE: Happy Hooligan was a popular and influential early American comic strip, the first major strip by cartoonist Frederick Burr Opper. He was a good-hearted hobo, covered in rags, with a tin can for a hat, who usually wore a broad smile despite his misfortune and bad luck in life. It debuted with a Sunday strip on March 11, 1900 in the William Randolph Hearst newspapers. This ornament soon went into production thereafter, along with other popular characters of the day.
