A recent addition to our collection, this beautiful antique 130 year-old snow boy holding a Christmas tree is one of the finest we’ve seen at this scale. He stands upon an antique molded starburst ornament that Glenn patiently decorated with 20 antique Dresden paper triangle pieces, light gold Dresden paper rope trim, antique Dresden paper star and vintage gold loop trim. A tiny beautiful antique Dresden paper medallion with even tinier light green rhinestone adds a delicate finish to this spectacular ornament.
Lovingly handcrafted and signed by Glenn Giaimo
THIS ONE-OF-A-KIND ORNAMENT IS MADE ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY WITH ANTIQUE AND VINTAGE MATERIALS to include: glass ornaments from the 1890s to1950s, most of which were made in Germany; colorful Victorian embossed & die-cut paper “scraps” and chromolithographs from postcards and advertising trade cards, made in Europe between the 1870s and 1910; antique and vintage fabric to include chenille, lace, ribbon and metallic trims; antique and vintage tinsel from tree garlands and old-stock German-made Lametta tinsel; gold and silver old-stock Dresden paper trims, crepe paper, foil, gift wrap, spun glass, and other embellishments. Items described as “antique” are dated between 1870 and the early 1900s (prior to WWI). Items described as “vintage” are dated between 1915 (WWI) and the 1950s (mid-century). We also use Dresden trims (only on occasion) and crinkle wire (always used for durability) made more recently in Germany using techniques and equipment that have not changed over the past 150 years.
