Christmas Angel & Mexican Glass Christmas Ornaments Italy 1960's
Here are two 1960's vintage glass Christmas ornaments typical of the unusual people ornaments made in Italy at that time.
- The first is a large 6" lady with added leaf wings that probably make her an angel of some sort. She has a painted face and other bits of added cloth finery... a leaf collar, glitter tinsel collar and hat with feathers and a ribbon sash with bells or doodads. The color scheme is white and gold. Her cloth parts are the worse for age or lack of care. Some loss of paint and areas with what appears to be glue... at wrists... where something may have been attached once. Dark crackle lines at bottom suggest something may have been attached here too... like spun hair... could have been a cloud at the bottom? I don't know. I purchased her from an estate sale long ago in this condition... couldn't resist her ancient charms.
- The second is the head of a Mexican man wearing a large red sombrero. Nicely painted face with mustache. Hat has glitter designs with some loss of red at a couple of points and a little crackling. In good condition otherwise. 2.5" long x 2.25" wide.
