THIS ORNAMENT WAS INSPIRED BY MID-SUMMER EVENINGS LIT BY JAPANESE-STYLE HANGING LANTERNS! The antique flower-fairy scrap is enhanced with gold antique Dresden paper wings, antique golden thread, and an additional paper heart extending 1/4" from the scrap for wonderful 3-D effect! The early vintage glass lantern ornament is embellished with antique Dresden paper trims and an antique gold Dresden paper cherub. The ornament hangs from a golden loop and is backed to lovely antique tinsel and antique Dresden paper butterfly (click picture to see both sides) . Handmade and signed by Gail Giaimo.
This one-of-a-kind ornament is made almost exclusively with antique and early vintage materials, including old glass ornament(s) with beautiful patina; detailed embossed scrap(s) (most of them predate the 1900s and are meticulously backed with early papers and/or old tinsel); a variety of old fabric to include chenille, lace, ribbon and metallic trims; old decorative tinsel (most of which is from old tree garlands); and old papers of all kinds, including lovely old-stock Dresden paper trims, crepe paper, old foil, gift wrap, and other embellishments.
