Really wonderful magical treatment! Angels in shell with eggs and butterflies were carefully hand-cut from an antique advertising "trade card". We added gold Dresden paper wheels to create a chariot and added delicate antique gold cording "reins" so the butterflies could be pulling the chariot. These elements were creatively attached to antique wired tinsel for free-floating effect. Handmade and signed by Glenn 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.
