This Gloria in Exelsis Deo ornament would make a beautiful addition to your Christmas tree. It's a LARGE-sized ornament! 5 1/4” x 7” Handmade ornament is made from traditional materials:
*PAPER SCRAP: Image printed in Germany on vintage machines. Reminiscent of scraps from the early 1900's.This HANDMADE ornament is made from traditional materials;
*PAPER SCRAP: Image was scanned from an antique Christmas card from the early 1900's.
*EMBOSSED FOIL MEDALLIONS: All are handmade in Germany on 150-year-old machines. The Victorians used these very same foils in making their ornaments!
*SPUN GLASS COMET TAIL: This is made with super thin pieces of glass! They are super shiny and actually flexible because they are so thin. In the Mid Century, it was called Angel Hair and people put “clouds” of it on mantles. There are very few people still handcrafting these.
Even the backside of this ornament is beautiful, see photo above. The wonderful thing about this ornament is that it is very LIGHTWEIGHT, being mostly paper, so can hang at the end of the branch where it can be seen! This ornament is made to hang, but I also make special TREE TOPPERS in this shop. One is in the last photo above.
This ornament will make a beautiful addition to your Christmas tree and become part of your family’s special Holiday Tradition. It fits perfectly in the gift box provided so you will always have a safe place to store it from year to year.
