This antique late Victorian era blown glass Christmas ornament is unsilvered pink, wrapped in crinkly gold bullion wire with coiled loopy wire arms, a strand of feather tinsel at the base, and a faded embossed scrap paper angel attached to the long pike. It measures 5-3/4 inches high to the metal cap. The ornament is in excellent condition for its age with no chips or breaks. Paint loss is minimal and mostly limited to the upper part of the stem. The flat pink paint is toned and has a little flaking at the bottom edge from contact with the feather tinsel. The ornament is flattened on the bottom and will stand upright by itself.
