9 ½” long; hangs from Victorian bump tinsel garland
We recently acquired a beautiful assortment of exceptional condition antique scraps of dogs and cats. This lively, beautifully rendered 5” antique scrap puss looks like he’s going to suddenly jump right off of this sideways parasol ornament at any moment. Antique glass parasol, embellished with a striking assortment of Dresden paper trims and accented with rare silk checkered ribbon, is balanced by our kitty and 120 year-old Victorian bump tinsel for easy hanging on a tree.
Lovingly handcrafted and signed by Glenn Giaimo.
THIS ONE-OF-A-KIND ORNAMENT IS MADE ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY WITH ANTIQUE AND VINTAGE MATERIALS to include: glass ornaments from the 1890s to1950s, most of which were made in Germany; colorful Victorian embossed & die-cut paper “scraps” and chromolithographs from postcards and advertising trade cards, made in Europe between the 1870s and 1910; antique and vintage fabric to include chenille, lace, ribbon and metallic trims; antique and vintage tinsel from tree garlands and old-stock German-made Lametta tinsel; gold and silver old-stock Dresden paper trims, crepe paper, foil, gift wrap, spun glass, and other embellishments. Items described as “antique” are dated between 1870 and the early 1900s (prior to WWI). Items described as “vintage” are dated between 1915 (WWI) and the 1950s (mid-century). We also use Dresden trims (only on occasion) and crinkle wire (always used for durability) made more recently in Germany using techniques and equipment that have not changed over the past 150 years.
