SPECIAL FEATURES We have fallen in love with this scrap, having had it in our collection for years. The flag is a very early linen one with the 13 stars representing the colonies. Our antique scrap girl was embellished with delicate antique lace, antique silk cording, and early vintage silk flowers. Her cotton batting skirt (made from an early vintage tree skirt) has mid-century Dennison paper patriotic stars, rare aqua antique Dresden paper stars, antique red and white striped fabric and other antique trims, to include red and blue cording.

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 German made embossed scrap(s) and chromolithographs (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. The exceptions to the exclusive use of old materials are as follows: 1) occasionally we use newer Dresden paper made in Germany that has been embossed and stamped with antique equipment; 2) Our high-quality gold and silver crinkle-wire is made in Germany with antique equipment.
