A unique, hard to find antique German mercury glass figural character ornament in wonderful condition. Circa late 1920s-1930s.

Character ornaments were very popular in the early part of the 20th Century. This is Punch the Clown, from the Victorian Punch and Judy puppet shows. He is simply wonderful with so much detail to the molded figure with his bright pink clown suit lined with a white ruffle collar. His pointed hat is forest green with hand painted white polka dots. His hands rest on his big belly.

The expressive face has hand painted features including black eyes and pointed eyebrows, and a magenta mouth which echoes the color of his suit. 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 antique vintage blown glass "Punch Clown" figural character Christmas ornament measures 3.75 inches tall to the top of the cap. It is in excellent antique condition with no chips or cracks, the silvering still very strong. The pike is intact, and is topped with the original metal cap and flat Lauscha style hanging loop. There are a few areas of paint loss, though minor considering its age. Most Punch ornaments from this era have a large amount of paint loss, so this one is superb!

What an amazing antique German blown glass Christmas ornament. A must have for any antique German or figural Christmas ornament collection. A very thoughtful and unique gift!

SIDE NOTE: This special ornament is featured on page 70 of John Lightner's "Christmas Rarities", 2007 edition, and had a book valued then at $175-$225.
