SPECIAL FEATURES This handsome brown hare, holding a sunny daisy, perches on an Easter egg-shaped ornament of yellow-gold and cream stripes accented with soft yellow roses and 3 different decorative trims accenting each of the 6 sides of the ornament. Hand-made and signed by Gail Giaimo.
MATERIALS UNIQUE TO THIS ORNAMENT Circa 1920s glass ornament with its original hand-painted detailing, antique scrap rabbit, early vintage fabric daisy, antique Christmas paper (backed to rabbit scrap), antique gold tinsel, antique scrap roses (3 sides of ornament), early vintage gold glass pike candy-striped with antique loop lace and mid-century cellophane ribbon.
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.
