SPECIAL FEATURES This joyous Christmas morning scene - an antique die-cut Santa with reindeer, unloading toys to the little children - was meticulously reinforced and backed to old-stock holly paper and dusted with rare finely ground antique glass glitter. Christmas ship was made with vintage glass cobalt blue icicle ornament and matching colored pike, antique and vintage Dresden papers, and multi-colored tinsel cording with tinsel puffs. 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 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.
