Excellent nicely molded early antique German mercury glass fish Christmas ornament in a rare large size and form! Circa early 1900s-1910s.

This is a hard to find antique German carp fish ornament. The carp has been a dominant Christian Christmas symbol since the mid 1800s when figural ornaments started to decorate the family Christmas trees. It represents good blessings and abundance, as well as the Christian faith, and was very popular during Victorian times when this ornament was made.

This is a large size ornament at 4.75 inches wide. It features a superb deeply molded design, showing graduating sizes of fish scales, gills, multiple fins, and a large pointed mouth which indicates the carp species. 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.

The silvering is still very strong with pink accents. The pike acts as the tail and is intact. It is topped with the original unmarked cap and flat wire hanging loop which are the early style produced in Lauscha, Germany.

It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. There is the usual oxidation on the pike end and cap, a bit of pink paint loss. What a fabulous addition to your vintage antique figural Christmas ornament collection. Highly sought after, a thoughtful Christian gift!
